Grief During the Holiday Season-Virtual Support Group for Mothers Who Have Lost a Child

November 17, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

EricsHouse Support Group for Mothers creates a safe space for you to talk about your loss. This group is open to Mothers who have lost a child to suicide, substance abuse, homicide, illness or any sudden loss. Grieving the loss of someone you love is difficult at any time of year. During the holiday season, we often experience intense emotions surrounding our loss. It seems impossible that the world is celebrating, but for those grieving, a sense of loneliness and sadness can overshadow the holiday.  Traditional holiday celebrations might feel very triggering and it might feel like we want to avoid the holiday altogether.  This group will provide you with support and helpful tips on how to survive.  We will discuss your loved one, our emotions, how to handle family and triggering events, and will provide options for navigating family and social events.  It’s important to know that you aren’t alone, and you can survive the holiday season in a way that allows you to be comfortable and to honor your grief and remember your loved one in ways that are helpful to you. 
This group will run weekly on Wednesdays at 5:00 PM MST for 6 sessions (excluding Thanksgiving week). There is no charge to join. Marianne Gouveia and Kim Hamilton are going to facilitate this wonderful group. They are both loss survivors who have participated in and facilitated EricsHouse support groups. We ask that you contact your facilitator, marianne@ericshouse.org to determine if this group is right for you. Pre-registration is required!
