Grief isn’t something you get over. It’s something you go through. Participants who have lost someone within the last year and a half will explore their reactions to loss, learn about the grieving process, develop strategies for coping and begin to integrate this change into their lives in order to move forward. This group will begin in mid October and run for 6-8 weeks. If interested fill out a Connection Card or contact Sue Cook at suec@faclex.com. A phone interview is required for registration.
