How to help someone who grieves having suffered a traumatic or violent loss?
Global Grief Support and MorningStar Renewal Center join together to offer an evening of support and education for those who care for the bereaved. You can expect to gain knowledge and skills in :
-The challenges of coping with grief due to violence
-Understanding how youth cope with grief (differently than adults)
-Pastoral care of the bereaved
Wednesday, April 11th - 6:30-9:30 p.m.
First Church Coral Springs
8650 West Sample Road
Coral Springs, FL 33065
The aim of the evening workshop is to equip local leaders, especially those who serve youth and/or families with youth, to recognize the signs of complicated grief and acquire tools to support those who are grieving. We will focus on the practical and spiritual needs of the bereaved and how best to support them. Our model intentionally integrates faith and spirituality as a resource for coping with grief and therefore is unique and a necessary undertaking of those whose community has been affected by trauma and/or violence.
This workshop is FREE of charge. A light dinner will be offered at 6:30--7:00 p.m.
