Hickory – Facing a holiday after the death of a loved one can be even more difficult than your friends and family members may realize. Join Carolina Caring staff at Patrick Beaver Memorial Library on Tuesday, November 19th, 2019 to find ways to cope with your loss. There will be two sessions, one at 2:00 pm and one at 6:00 pm.

If you are dealing with grief, it’s likely that you’re experiencing a jumble of emotions that you’ve yet to sort out. The GriefShare: Surviving the Holidays video and discussion time will help you not only survive the holidays but also find strength, healing and tools to move forward in your daily walk through the deep pain of grief. On the videos, you will meet experts and other people who have experienced the death of a loved one. These people share honestly about:

• Coping with surprising emotions that may hit over the holidays
• Preparing for traditions and other coming changes
• Handling holiday parties and invitations

In the discussion time, you’ll have the chance to discuss what you’ve learned from the video and ask questions about any concerns you may have. Annette Walker from Carolina Caring’s grief program will be the facilitator for the workshop.

The Coping with Grief During the Holidays sessions will take place on November 19th at 2:00 pm and at 6:00 pm. For more information, please call 828-304-0500.

Patrick Beaver Memorial Library is located at 375 3rd Street NE on the SALT Block. All library programs are free and open to the public.
