“You will not “get over” the loss of a loved one; you’ll learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same nor would you want to.”

Online Grief Group for Parents Who Have Experienced the Loss of a Child
 

Thursdays, September 8 - October 13
6:30PM - 8PM  
(Facilitated by Stacey Mustatia)

Fee: $50

This is a 6 week group for parents or caregivers who have lost a child through death loss.
Parenting or the anticipation of parenting is comprised of overwhelming feelings of love, guilt, fear, joy and a huge sense of responsibility. Parenting brings change to our lives and a constant state of not knowing what the next stage will bring. When we lose a child, these feelings are magnified many times over, but our joy is gone.

How can we overcome silence or misunderstandings with our marital partners /co-parents in this grief that we share, but that we feel so alone in? Learn skills to do so in a safe environment with other parents who have experienced loss, and are experiencing the same emotions and emptiness that you feel.
