Journaling Your Way Through Grief: The grief process following the loss of a loved one is often described as a journey with many twists and turns. Writing about your journey can be a powerful tool for healing. It allows you to give voice to your grief, reflect on the ups and downs, and identify patterns that may trigger both pain and moments of peace. This 2 hour workshop is designed to facilitate the emotional healing process through journaling. There will be both didactic and experiential components to the program. All are welcome regardless of where you are in your grief journey. Materials provided. This Workshop is planned for Saturday, February 11from 9:30 until 11:30 a.m. To register or for more info, call Andrea Heinlein, LICSW at 508-358-3000, ex. 249.
