For Young Widows 20's through 60's

Often women in this age group do not have peers who are going through this kind of loss, and their grief can feel very isolating. Juggling jobs, children, parents, and social obligations is hard; it feels overwhelming when spousal grief is added. This group provides the time to express and share grief, learn coping skills from one another, give
and receive support, and begin the healing process.

ADULT PARENTAL LOSS

Starts Thursday September 16, 2021 and meets for six consecutive weeks.
Afternoon Group - 2:30-4:00 p.m.
Evening Group - 5:30-7:00 p.m.

To register call Adrian Bartholomeo, LMSW, at 315-570-1131 by September 9,
2021.

For any adult who has experienced the death of a parent. The loss of a parent is the most common form of bereavement in our country. Because of this, adult children often feel a sense of isolation and may sense an unspoken message that adult parental loss is less significant than other losses. No matter what the age of our parent or where or how the death occurred, the grief felt by an adult child can be intense and overwhelming. This
group is a safe place to share feelings and experiences, ask questions, seek comfort or just listen. It is a place to receive and give support.

SPOUSAL LOSS GRIEF GROUP

Starts Wednesday September 8 and meets for six consecutive weeks.
Afternoon Group - 2:30-4:00 p.m.
Evening Group - 5:30-7:00 p.m.

To register call Sabrina Wing, LCSW, at 315-982-2103 by September 1, 2021.

For anyone who has experienced the death of a spouse or partner. The length of a marriage or committed relationship does not determine the depth of grief.

It is a place to receive and give support.

BRAVE HEARTS CHILDREN'S PROGRAM

"I share with you the agony of your grief,
The anguish of your heart finds echo in my own.
I know I cannot enter all you feel
Nor bear with you the burden of your pain;
I can but offer what my love does give:
The strength of caring,
The warmth of one who seeks to understand
The silent storm-swept barrenness of so great a loss.
This I do in quiet ways,
That on your lonely path
You may not walk alone."
-Howard Thurman, Meditations of the Heart
