Emotional Support Group during the Holidays

Because holidays aren't Hallmark occasions for those who have experienced significant loss (whether through death, trauma, major life change or other loss). Victoria Robinson, MSS, LCSW, ACSW, will help participants look at the "Triple A's" of grief: awareness, acknowledgement and action, to help plan for handling grief during the holidays. The session will offer guidance for mourners and for those supporting someone who has experienced loss.  For more information contact bunyipltd@msn.com.  Presented with the support of BCRC Sisterhood; open to all.
