Grief Support Group Offered This Summer at Hopewell Valley Senior Center

06/23/2012

 GRIEF SUPPORT GROUP


The death of a loved one is likely the single most difficult challenge that humans experience. Grief is universal, and the natural confusion of emotions often leaves one feeling overwhelmed. The need to find new meaning in living, developing and improving relationships is pivotal to regaining normalcy. Support groups assist individuals in expressing, understanding, and coping with their emotions. Within a trusting safe environment participants are encouraged to explore their reactions to loss, learn about the grieving process, develop strategies for coping and begin to integrate this change into their lives in order to move forward.

 

A grief support group is being offered this summer at the Hopewell Valley Senior Center, 395 Reading Street in Pennington. The group will begin on Monday, July 2nd and run until August 13th from 2 to 3:30pm. There will be no group on July 30th. The group will be facilitated by Davida Barr, LSW of Community Education and Outreach of Greenwood House.
