About This Event

The holiday season can be difficult for those grieving the death of a loved one. Lost & Found Grief Center staff members Dr. Karen Scott and Jeanene Gerhardt will explore common grief responses, holiday grief triggers and strategies for getting through the holidays, including ways to adjust traditions to reduce physical and emotional demands, and ideas to honor the memory of the deceased. Participants can make a commemorative ornament to take home. Seating is limited; materials will be provided. This event is part of a series on Death & Dying sponsored by the Springfield-Greene County Library District and community partners. Registration begins October 23; call 616-0566 to register.
