Online Webinar : How to cope with grief at Christmas
Thursday, 19 December 2013 from 20:00 to 21:00 (GMT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Grief and loss are difficult to deal with at any time but for many the festive season brings more challenges. I understand those challenges only too well but also know that there are things you can do to make it easier for you and your family.
I have experienced many deaths and known deep grief especially with the loss of my son Calum in 2007. My book From Heartbreak to Happiness is my story of recovery and reconnection with life following his death. I know that happiness is possible but at times it is more about getting through the next minute, hour or day. If you feel that it is all too much, if your grief feels overwhelming or you are supporting someone through it then please join me.
On this call, I will share my practical tips and suggestions on coping with grief during the festive period. The very things that make a difference to me even now. There will be no sales pitches, this is all about practical help including:
- What to do if you just can't face the thought of Christmas without your loved one.
- How to manage if your tears never seem to stop.
- Finding some light in the darkest of days.
- How to cope with all those Christmas adverts, songs and smiling faces.
- What to do about cards and presents.
- How to ask others for help.
- Do you need a plan?
If you have a question for me - you can type it in the box on the screen and I will answer on the call.
