This grief education class will explore various kinds of losses we face in life. These may include dementia or other serious illness diagnoses, divorce, or death of a loved one.
Participants will learn about the most common physical side effects of grief following a major loss. Group discussion will explore strategies for self-care, including the importance of rituals to honor your loved ones.

Perhaps best known for his model of "companioning" verses treating mourners, Dr. Wolfelt is committed to helping people mourn well so they can live and love well.
