Life Applications for Healing from Grief

Presented by John Plunkett, Preston-Hanley’s Aftercare Coordinator.  The group will meet four consecutive Thursdays in October at Avanti’s Restaurant, 3620 Kelly Ave. in Pekin. (North of Walmart / east of Menards) No enrollment or pre-registration is required.  Sessions will begin at 11:00 am and last approximately an hour.  Afterwards you can order lunch off the menu as our guest.  

October 4 - The Nature of Grief – An introductory time for the coordinator to get acquainted with participants and explore the characteristics and duration of grief.

October 11 - It’s Your Choice – Grieving becomes a choice. The group will address the fact that people have the ability to make the choice to heal from their grieving.

October 18 - Finding Your Way – The focus in this session will be on navigating through the second year of grief.

October 25 - Memories – Healing through grief is not meant to dissuade people from memories of their loved one, but to help them find ways that are not depressing to keeping their memory alive.
