Holiday Grief 2020: A Season of the Heart


Grieving the loss of a loved one is always a challenge, but the holiday season can seem unbearable.  The holiday season as we once knew it is no longer.  With the current challenges we face, the world we live, work, and play in today is dramatically different from the world we lived in only one year ago.  How are we to handle what is supposed to be a time of family togetherness, joy, and celebration?  Our sense of normalcy is paused . . . seemingly almost non-existent, yet we  can’t avoid the sights, sounds, smells, or mentions that remind us of what was and is no longer.

Dora Carpenter, Founder of the Institute of Professional Grief Coaching, shares in this webinar common pitfalls of holiday grief, how to avoid them, and tips for handling grief and moving forward this holiday season and beyond.
