There are many suggestions passed around on social media regarding what you should not say to someone who is grieving. Phrases like “She is in a better place.” or “You will find another partner.” though well-meant can cause additional pain to widowed people and create divides between friends and family members. In this workshop we will talk about what you can say when supporting a grieving person. We will discuss the power of words as well as the power of silence during those times when you don’t know what to say or how to help. You will leave this workshop familiar with the language of compassion and prepared to support a grieving person through both words and actions.
