Grief Course Offered by Calvert Hospice
Prince Frederick, MD - 12/28/2012
By Calvert Hospice
Calvert Hospice is offering a free, 7-week course to help grieving persons integrate loss into life in healthy ways. This class provides an opportunity for sharing and learning around a common theme, “Understanding Your Grief: Ten Essential Touchstones for Finding Hope and Healing Your Heart.” The author of the course guide is renowned grief counselor and educator Alan Wolfelt, PhD. Pre-registration is required to attend this series of group sessions. There is no cost and a course book will be provided. Participants may choose to purchase or return their course book at the end of the study.
Beginning February 5, 2013, the sessions will be held on Tuesdays from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the Burnett Calvert Hospice House, 4559 Sixes Road, Prince Frederick, MD.
This group is designed for adults (18 years and up) who have experienced the death of another adult in their life due to illness or accident. It is intended for those whose loss occurred between three and 24 months prior to the start of Course. Exceptions are made on a case by case basis, so please call if interested or to learn about other grief support services.
To pre-register or obtain more information, please contact Linzy Laughhunn. We recommend you register early, as we expect the course to fill up quickly. This course will be repeated at alternate times and locations around Calvert County.
Calvert Hospice has additional resources to recommend to those who have other grief needs, such as the death of a child, a child that is struggling with loss of someone, a death by suicide, or by violence/crime. Also, if there is sufficient interest in a ‘daytime’ offering of this course, we will offer that option. Please let us know if that would be a preferred choice.
