Finding Your Way Through the Wilderness of Grief: Virtual Support Group for Men & Women Who Suddenly Lost Their Partner or Spouse

February 28 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Pre-registration is required! To see if this is the right group for you please contact kim@ericshouse.org.

This group is open to Men or Woman who have lost their spouse or partner. Sudden loss of a loved one is shocking and hard to process. If you have suddenly lost your spouse you are most likely experiencing complicated grief. This might cause you to feel extremely alone, disoriented, guilty, and overwhelmed. Our group is open to Men and Women who have experienced the traumatic and premature loss of their partner/spouse. Sudden loss can mean anything from suicide, substance abuse, accident, homicide or illness. We kindly invite you to join our group. We may work through a complicated set of emotions  in a supportive and comfortable environment. Our groups provide a safe, intimate place to talk about your feelings of loss and to remember the one who passed.

Meetings will be virtual. We will follow The Wilderness of Grief – Finding Your Way by Dr. Alan D. Wolfelt, PH. D. This support group meets  biweekly on Monday at 6:00 PM MST (8:00 PM EST  – 5:00 PM PST). Sessions begin on February 28th and end on June 20th.
