Managing Change And Loss

Diane Lang, therapist, author, educator

Loss and change are inevitable. But dealing with loss and change can be the most difficult times in our lives. Whether it is the death of a spouse, friend or family member; moving to a new city; retiring from your job; downsizing-the stress and subsequent grief are challenging. We will discuss: reactions to grief and recognizing the damaging effect of unresolved grief; strategies for grieving effectively and how to support family members and friends who are grieving. We will use techniques from Positive Psychology and Elizabeth Kubler Ross’s stages of grief. Participants will be encouraged to interact in a supportive atmosphere. 3 SESSIONS
