Free Grief During the Holidays class to be held in several locations

Hospice of the Red River Valley is offering a free Grief During the Holidays educational grief program for adults who are managing grief during the holidays.

Grief During the Holidays
Managing grief in times of celebration can be overwhelming. Suffering the loss of a loved one is difficult any time of the year, but the holiday season can intensify feelings of loss. This presentation will enable attendees to identify and learn how to manage the mixed and painful emotions that can surface when grieving during the holidays. Participants will also learn important self-care strategies. This class is free and open to the public; no registration required for this class.
