March 19 Lunch ‘n Learn to look at grief support
DOVER-FOXCROFT — Many people often discover that there are multiple unexpected losses following the death of a loved one. Acquaintances and friends may not know how to interact with the bereaved and begin to withdraw from their relationship. Family relationships often change. The bereaved will attempt to maintain prior relationships, but for whatever reason people may not reciprocate. These losses or significant changes in friendships, family, and connections can make one’s grief and grief journey all the more difficult to navigate.
Dr. Deborah Drew, professor and director of counseling and human relations at Husson University and clinical consultant for Pine Tree Hospice will be addressing this topic at the next session of Lunch n’ Learn. Lunch ‘n Learn will take place Tuesday, March 19 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Dover-Foxcroft and is part of Pine Tree Hospice’s adult grief support program. The session is open to adults in the community who have experienced grief due to death, whether recently or in the past. The support group, presentation and delicious nutritious lunch are all free of charge.
