Calm Waters Offers ‘Coping with Grief Through the Holidays’ Online Workshop for Grieving Families
Coping with Grief through the Holidays | Wednesday, November 18, 12 to 1 p.m.
Oklahoma City, OK — Calm Waters Center for Children and Families, the only grief center in central Oklahoma offering free grief support services to children and families, is offering a free workshop on Wednesday, November 18, 12 to 1 p.m.
Calm Waters’ winter grief workshop, “Coping with Grief through the Holidays,” is a free, online workshop, for families going through a grief journey because of a death, divorce, deployment, deportation, incarceration or foster/adoptive care challenges. The workshop is for an adult audience but will address children’s coping techniques as well.
“Families who have experienced a loss this past year may feel more distant and isolated, alone in their grief and uncertain of how to approach the holiday season,” said Heather Warfield, LMFT, Calm Waters’ Program Director. “For many, feelings of grief, stress, guilt, sadness and uncertainty amass into utter despair. Our grief workshop provides actionable items for navigating the holiday season when coping with a death, divorce, or other significant loss.”
The November 18 online workshop, led by Warfield and Jordan Park, LMFT-candidate and Calm Waters assistant program director, will discuss new coping skills and activities to manage the already stressful holidays and how families can address and celebrate change and create new traditions.
