A Practical Guide For Grieving During The Holidays
There’s nothing anyone can say to take away the pain of a person’s grief, especially at the holidays. So we don’t have magic words or concrete solutions to get grieving people through the holidays season–no one does–because the bottom line is, grieving during the holidays is extremely difficult.
However, just because we can’t provide a quick fix doesn’t mean we can’t offer help and support. There are ways to make the holiday season more manageable after a loss, while also to creating space for comfort, connection with loved ones, and honoring and remembering loved ones who’ve died.
In this 12-page booklet, we provide readers with a practical plan for grieving during the holidays. We believe one of the best ways to make it through the holidays after a loss is to acknowledge that certain things will be hard and to plan by thinking about changes and challenges, identifying coping outlets, and connecting with support systems.
The plan laid out in this guide for grieving during the holidays can be completed individually or with family and friends. Grief support professionals may find that the booklet is a helpful tool to accompany a holiday grief mailing, holiday grief workshops, and support groups.
