WHAT TO SAY TO SOMEONE WHO HAS LOST A LOVED ONE SEMINAR - This seminar is designed to educate communities on practical ways to address someone that is mourning the loss of a loved one. As a society, we are trained not to discuss death and the idea of what to say to someone after their loved one has died, leaves many feeling awkward and uncomfortable. Unfortunately, while well intentioned, many of the oft-heard expressions used at funerals and thereafter are misguided and, frankly, insensitive. Meet our panel of "survivors" to hear what they have to say, in a lighthearted environment about what you should say and what NOT to say. Space is limited.
6:00pm-7:30pm: Wednesday, March 20th - Seminar is free of charge
6:00pm-7:30pm: Wednesday, August 7th - Seminar is free of charge
HOW TO HELP A GRIEVING CHILD - This seminar is designed for a parent, guardian or caregiver caring for a child or teen who has experienced the death of a mother, father, caregiver, sister, brother, or friend. Grief is frightening experience and you may wonder how you can help. Some children may have emotional outbursts while others show minimal emotions. Some children want to talk about the death, while others want to be left alone. Younger children may be clingy, whereas teens may prefer to spend time alone or with friends. Becoming aware that each child grieves in his or her own way is essential to the healing process for a family. We have gathered helpful and practical information to help you to listen and talk to your child about their feelings and watch their behavior. There are a number of things you can do to help a bereaved child. Join us in learning more.
6:00pm-7:30pm: Wednesday, February 27th - Seminar is free of charge
PLANNING FOR YOUR FUTURE HEALTH CARE DECISIONS SEMINAR - It's not easy to think about the end-of-life. It's even harder to talk about it. But it is one of the most important conversations YOU can have with your loved ones. This will be a 60 minute interactive group session where you are able to learn, ask questions and share your experiences. You will also have an opportunity to fill out a health care directive. Advance directives allow you to express your values, wishes and your voice to your loved ones and providers. Planning now when you are sound of mind benefits not only yourself but the loved ones around you. Space is limited.
WHAT'S FILLING YOUR BUCKET WORKSHOP - When facing loss in life our life buckets can either feel empty or full of defeat, sadness and despair. We are not thinking people with emotions. We are emotional people who think. Let's start thinking about what we're thinking about. Emotions drive our actions and influence our relationships, productivity, health and happiness. During this half-day workshop you will find ways to choose to fill your bucket with positive emotions that help you live a meaningful life as opposed to feeling as though you're simply living the life handed to you. Become a person who dreams wildly, lives differently, loves recklessly and leads courageously.
9:00am-3:00pm: Saturday TBD
