When we learn to grieve well, we can journey through grief, find healing, purpose, and move towards re-creating our lives after loss. In this program, Pat Obst, LCSW, MSW and Loretta Depka Zerbo, Executive Director discussed the process of grieving during the holidays.
It can be challenging; some people think it SUCKS (Sad; Uncomfortable; Challenging; Keeps our pain fresh; and Seals our joy) but there are opportunities for healing and growth when you learn to grieve well.
