This spring Hospice of the Red River Valley is offering free educational workshops for adults and youth who have recently experienced the death of a loved one. Pre-registration is required for all classes because space is limited.
Journeying Through Grief
Journeying Through Grief is a free class, or series of classes depending on location, designed for those who are recently bereaved. It is intended for adults 18 years and older who have experienced the recent loss of a loved one. The sessions will help you better understand the grief process, explore methods of self-care, and embrace and carry memories with you as you move forward. Journeying Through Grief will be held at several locations throughout our service area.
These programs are for youth, ages 6 to 18, who have lost a loved one. The programs will provide youth an opportunity to participate in grief support activities, share stories, create memory keepsakes and receive support from their peers. Parents/guardians are also required to attend a portion of the day. Snacks will be provided.
How to Help a Grieving Friend
When a friend loses a loved one through death, we struggle to know what to do. Working through grief involves accepting the loss, experiencing the pain of that loss and creating a different bond or relationship with the person you have lost. This presentation offers attendees ways to help a friend who has experienced the loss of a loved one. A light lunch or dinner will be provided along with the session.
