Description

Bereavement Support Group

Mount Auburn Hospital offers 8-week long bereavement support groups. Each series will meet for eight Monday evenings, 6:00-7:30 p.m. in the Clough Conference Room. Registration for each session closes after the second week.

The main goal of a bereavement group is to break the isolation grief can impose on all of us. Participants have a chance to meet other people who are experiencing a significant loss and to share what works and does not work. A bereavement group does not take the place of professional counseling (individual or group). If you feel as if you are dealing with some complicated issues in your grief you might consider seeing a grief counselor, as well as participating in a bereavement group. There is no fee, and an educational component is interwoven into each session. Some topics we will cover: the nature of grief, how to handle stress, finding friends and family members who are supportive.

Any adult who has experienced the death of someone close is welcomed. Participants typically have experienced the death of a spouse/partner, child, sibling, friend, and/or other relative.

This support group meets on the following dates:

October 19, 2020

October 26, 2020

November 2, 2020

November 9, 2020

November 16, 2020

November 23, 2020

November 30, 2020

December 7, 2020

Registration for the session closes after the second week.

This is an online support group and will be held through a Zoom meeting. Information will be provided prior to the first meeting. Please contact Beth Loomis eloomis@mah.harvard.edu for the Zoom information
