The Holidays can be difficult for those who are grieving the death of a loved one. This online workshop is designed to support you as you navigate the holiday season, especially during our current pandemic environment. Our hope is that the workshop will provide an opportunity for space to share about emotions and feelings and provide strategies, tools, and connections as we enter and navigate the holidays.
