Dealing with grief is subject of new hospital program | Health
The death of a loved one, a child leaving home, or overwhelming changes in one’s personal life – each can cause profound grief and suffering. To offer reassurance and comfort, Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center has developed a free support program called “Grief Recovery.”
In this program, participants will learn that grief is normal, examine the various emotions of grief, be encouraged to face the pain, and find ways to make a healthy emotional withdrawal from the loss. Conducting the sessions will be Theresa O’Bryan, Hospital Chaplain, and Tom Holsworth, a clinical psychologist who has served as a co-facilitator of this program since its inception in 1991.
The Grief Recovery Support series consists of five weekly sessions on Tuesdays, February 19, 26, March 5, 12 and 19. The class will meet from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. in the chapel at Memorial Hospital. For more information or to register for the program, please call 812/996-0219.
