Holiday bereavement workshops for adults, teens and children
For many years, Chesapeake Life Center’s popular Holiday Living with Loss workshops have helped grieving adults through a difficult time of year. This year, children and adolescents can also benefit from this aid.
The season begins with an adult workshop hosted by Calvert Hospice, an affiliate brand of Hospice of the Chesapeake. It will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, November 19 at the Burnett Calvert Hospice House, 4559 Sixes Road, Prince Frederick, Maryland. Led by bereavement professionals, participants can participate in group activities that help them find a way to honor the memory of loved ones while allowing themselves to grieve.
The adult workshop will be held again for adults from 5:30-7:30 p.m., Wednesday, December 7, at two locations: at the John & Cathy Belcher Campus, 90 Ritchie Highway, Pasadena, Maryland, and at the Prince County Office of George at 9500 Medical Center Drive, Suite 250. Largo, Maryland. For those who prefer to participate from home, the Largo session will also be held via Zoom. Participants will be able to interact with those present.
Children ages 6-18 have two opportunities to participate in holiday-themed activities that will help them learn to get through the holidays without their special someone. Each will include breakout sessions for various age groups. The first workshop for children and teens will be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m., Wednesday, December 7, at the John & Cathy Belcher Campus, 90 Ritchie Highway, Pasadena. The second will be from 5:30-7:30 p.m., Wednesday, December 14, at the Calvert Prince Frederick Library, 850 Costley Way.
Besides the Calvert Library Workshop, which is free, the cost is $10 per person. Registration is required and can be completed by calling 1-888-501-7077 or [email protected]
