Don’t Worry, Be Happy?

A seminar on healthy and unhealthy grief and healthy and unhealthy worrying.

Thursday, April 23, 2015 | 7:00 – 9:00 pm – Free of charge and open to the public

The craziness of grief encompasses a vast array of reactions. But at what point does our grief become unhealthy? Join us as we examine the boundaries of healthy grief.

How are my family members coping? In this workshop you will NOT be told not to worry. Instead come ready to discover some strategies for sorting out what is healthy and what might not be healthy grief.
