Broken Hearts: Surviving Intense Grief (Elderwwerks/Belmont Village)
Grief and heartbreak: the two are inseparable — and it’s complicated. So what can we do when we are working with or helping someone dealing with loss? In this presentation, you will learn healthy coping skills, what not to say to someone grieving, available support and other information about the process of grief. We’ll cover grief caused by experiences ranging from death of a loved one or pet, loss of independence, to anticipatory grief. We will also talk about Broken Heart Syndrome in which the body physically reacts to the stress of grief and how that is treated.
