Life After Loss Bereavement Group
This eight-week support group will begin on Monday, February 12th from 10:00 am to 11:30 am at Women & Family Life Center's Carriage House.
Life After Loss is for anyone who has experienced loss and is still working through their grief. The support group, led by Dr. Margo Merin, DSW, will guide participants in written and shared discussions on dealing with life after loss. Individuals will learn about types of grief, coping skills, self-care and self-love suggestions. Participants will also be introduced to the concept of listening to one's "inner self," working through the many emotions of loss, what the future will look like, and much more. Dr. Merin will facilitate several exercises and conversations during the support group.
Dr. Merin said, "Participants will be talking about how they view their identity as an individual and how they incorporate who they are into a life that has meaning and purpose, despite the death of the individual - learning to appreciate their individuality while, at the same time, never having to forget or erase meaningful memories."
