Dr. Alan Wolfelt – The Six Needs of Mourning April 21 2020
April 21, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 6:15 pm
Join internationally recognized expert on grief on loss, Dr. Alan Wolfelt, as he discusses the coronavirus, grief, and the “Six Needs of Mourning.”
After someone you love dies, you grieve inside. You have many different thoughts and feelings, most of them painful. We call this interior experience of loss “grief.” Mourning means to express your grief outside of yourself. Mourning is crying, talking to other people about the death, sharing stories, putting together photo albums, journaling, and other actions. Mourning is essential because it’s through mourning that you begin to heal.
Join us for a candid discussion with Dr. Alan Wolfelt about how are experiencing grief, not only from our losses, but because of the challenging times we are facing as a result of the novel coronavirus.
