WMH to Offer Grief Workshop
Grief Workshop Facilitator and Licensed Social Worker Neil Petrosky said the workshop will focus on grief as a normal part of an individual’s transition through life. “As a normal life cycle experience, grief can best be described as a distinctive cluster of common emotional, physical and spiritual reactions to loss,” explained Petrosky, adding, “This description of grief in no way diminishes how traumatic a loss can be for the griever. Rather, it says we can identify with each other as human beings who all struggle with the death of a loved one.” Petrosky invites participants to join together and help each other heal.
Participants are also encouraged to explore their own solutions to the challenges of living without their loved ones and dealing with the many changes that follow a loss. The workshop will provide a safe place in which individuals can sort out which activities and time tables are right for them.
The workshop experience will be enhanced by attending all six sessions; however, it is understandable if someone cannot attend each session. The sessions will be held at Wayne Memorial Hospital from 1:30 to 3 PM on consecutive Tuesdays running through the end of November.
There is no charge for the workshop, but participants are asked to complete a registration form. It can clicking on the link below or by contacting Petrosky at (570) 253-8608. He is also available for questions.
