Coping with the Holidays Workshop
December 6, 2018
The holiday season for people in grief can raise lots of feelings and memories about past holidays that make navigating the month of December especially challenging. This workshop will explore strategies for getting through the holiday season that might include honouring the person who died while creating new traditions and rituals. If you have questions about this session, please contact Peggy Moore at 905-712-8119 x 232.
