Grief and the Holidays | 2021


Wednesday, December 8
7:00pm - 8:30pm

Grief is always painful, but it feels like someone turns up the volume on our grief during the holidays. VOICES held a virtual workshop on Wednesday, December 8, 2021 at 7:00pm, exploring our personal experiences of loss during this holiday season. Different types of loss, such as: cumulative, anticipatory, delayed, suffocated, disenfranchised and ambiguous loss will be discussed; and we will identify goals for the weeks ahead. Most importantly, we discerned ways to practice resilience during this joyful, but often difficult, time of year.

This virtual workshop was made possible by the generosity of Bank of America. Voices Center for Resilience is grateful for their support.
