Moving Forward: Reinvesting in Life After Loss, 6-week group
Mondays, Oct 8 – Nov 13, 1 to 3 pm
Feeling ready to move forward? The early phases of grief are consumed with feelings of numbness, disbelief, confusion, fatigue, deep yearning, and waves of grief. As time passes and the intensity of grief lessens, a sense of possibility, feeling of hope and ability to imagine ways that one can start to move forward begin to set in. The questions for many become: “What’s next?” “How do I do this?” “Where do I go from here?” “Who am I now?”
This six-week group aims to provide support for the bereaved as they begin reinvesting in life. Due to the group’s focus, we recommend that at least a year has passed since the participant’s loss.
Please register by Friday, October 6th. Contact Yolo Hospice at (530) 758-5566 to register. There is no fee to participate but space is limited.
