Surviving the Holidays – a one time special seminar

Steve and Beth Durfee

GriefShare: Surviving the Holidays is a helpful, encouraging seminar for people facing the holidays after a loved one’s death. Please join us on Monday, November 16, 2015, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Ranch House Laredo Room at Robson Ranch. The cost is $7, which includes a printed Survival Guide.

The seminar features video interviews with counselors, grief experts and other people who have experienced the holidays after their loved one’s death and who offer practical suggestions and reassurance. These people share honestly about:

Being prepared for surprising emotions that may hit over the holidays

What to do about traditions and other coming changes

How to handle holiday parties and invitations

How to survive potentially awkward moments with other people

Where to find comfort, strength and hope in a seemingly hopeless time

The seminar includes a Survival Guide. It is filled with practical tips, encouraging words, journaling ideas and exercises for daily help through the holiday season. Those who register by November 9 will receive the Survival Guide when they attend; otherwise it will arrive after the session.
