“Understanding Your Grief,” a free 8-week class will run from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays from Aug. 4-22 at Serenity Hospice Home, 1658 S. Illinois 2.
The structure of the group will follow the book by Alan D. Wolfelt, noted author, educator, and grief counselor, which covers 10 touchstones in the areas of physical, emotional, cognitive, social, and spiritual growth to help through the grief process.
Wolfelt has written many books about healing after the loss of a loved one and is considered a leading grief educator. The class will be facilitated by Cathy Warren, Serenity’s bereavement coordinator.
“I am very excited to offer a class like this one,” said Warren. “Our grief groups are usually open-ended and people come and go as they travel through their own journey of grief. This is a more structured approach and the participant will know exactly when it will end.”
Each participant will receive a free copy of the book.
In an effort to contain the spreading of the COVID-19 virus, temperatures will be taken upon entering the building, and face masks are required.
