Calm Waters’ “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 holidays can be physically and emotionally draining, especially if you’re grieving.

Do we want to decorate this year? Do we want to attend our usual parties this year? How will we handle conversations about the person who died or the new separation? What about conversations with people who do not know about our grief story?

Calm Waters’ in-house clinicians, Heather Warfield, LMFT and Jordan Park, LMRF-candidate will discuss new coping skills to manage the probably already stressful holidays and how families can address and celebrate change and create new traditions.

During Calm Waters’ 1-hour, Sept. 28 grief workshop, “Fighting Family Burnout During a Pandemic,” sponsored by Metro Family Magazine, you will learn 3 strategies to help children talk and process their emotions of grief, and ways to cope as a parent in this new way of life.

The COVID-19 pandemic has left families yearning for days of the past when children were able to safely attend school and other activities with their friends and in their communities. Gone are the days parents were able to focus on being parents without also being a teacher. This stress and loss of normalcy has created an environment where families are mourning their old roles, rituals, and routines.
