Our identity and purpose is defined in part by our relationships with others. The death of a loved one can alter our view of how we see ourselves and our future. This six-week virtual support group will address these issues of purpose and identity and will provide opportunities to find clarity, direction and meaning after the loss of a loved one.
Participants will learn about aspects of identity and purpose in the grief process and receive guidance on steps forward in their healing. Group members will participate in writing, mindfulness and strength building practices and receive elective homework assignments in between sessions.
A screening is required to participate in this group. Please register as soon as possible or no later than June 9, as space is limited. A representative from Sharp HospiceCare will contact you one to two weeks before the start date to find out if this group is right for you.
