Are you grieving the death of a loved one this Advent season? Or do you know someone who is? You are invited to attend Rimrock’s GriefShare Surviving the Holidays one-time seminar on Monday, December 10th at 6:30 pm at the Exchange. The seminar is designed to provide tips for the Christmas season and will include a devotional to take home.
The video seminar is loaded with practical, hope-inspiring ideas including:
Why the holidays are so difficult
How to plan for the season
How to deal with holiday invitations
Surviving “alone time”
Dealing with emotional ambushes
Managing strong emotions
Creating new traditions while honoring your loved one’s legacy
You may contact Lee and Jane at 605-390-0203 with any questions you may have.
GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements:
Video Seminars: Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting-to-watch television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments and on-location video.
Support Group Discussions: After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week's video seminar and what is going on in your lives.
Workbook Based Personal Study and Reflection: During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling. Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.
When to Begin
You are welcome to begin attending the GriefShare group at any session. Each is "self-contained," so you do not have to attend in sequence. You will find encouragement and help whenever you begin. You will be able to continue with GriefShare through the next 13-week cycle and view any of the videos you have not seen.
