Finding Meaning After Loss!!!
 
Thursday, Aug 1, 2024.
 
11:30 a.m. ET,  10:30 a.m. CT,  9:30 a.m. MT,  8:30 a.m. PT.
 
Duration: 90 Minutes.
 
FREE online event. AARP Membership not required.
 
Even after a devastating loss, it's possible to find meaning and joy.
 
About the Event.
 
When you’re grieving, it’s easy to get stuck in your pain and remain bitter, angry or depressed. But if you can find meaning in even the most senseless loss, you can find ways to live a good and someday even joyful life, enriched by the lessons and love of the person who died.
 
This webinar on finding meaning after loss will share insights on how to go about it:
 
[1] Why the six stages of grief were never meant to be linear.
 
[2] What “meaning making” is, and why it’s key to recovery from grief.
 
[3] How meaning making can help you remember the person who died with more love than pain.
 
[4] The keys to finding acceptance and moving into meaning making.
 
[5] Why post-traumatic growth is an important part of meaning making.

Coping With the Guilt of Grief!!!
 
Thursday, Aug 29, 2024.
 
11:30 a.m. ET,  10:30 a.m. CT,  9:30 a.m. MT,  8:30 a.m. PT.
 
Duration: 90 Minutes.
 
FREE online event. AARP Membership not required.
 
We’ll explore how to deal with guilt and regret, common feelings after a loss.
 
About the Event.
 
The finality of death allows no more time for making amends, no second chances. So it’s normal to feel guilt and regret about mistakes made and opportunities squandered. Yet shining the light of understanding and forgiveness on yourself and finding ways to express these natural feelings allow them to soften.
 
This webinar will offer the insight and tools you need to evolve from guilt to grace.

Coping With the Anxiety of Grief!!!
 
Thursday, Aug 15, 2024.
 
11:30 a.m. ET, 10:30 a.m. CT, 9:30 a.m. MT,  8:30 a.m. PT.
 
Duration: 90 Minutes.
 
FREE online event. AARP Membership not required.
 
Find out how to soothe the natural anxiety that arises in people who are grieving.
 
About the Event.

During this webinar you’ll learn:
 
[1] How to understand your anxiety and fears after loss – and their purpose.
 
[2] Why soothing your fears is essential.
 
[3] How continuous anxiety is bad for your health.

You’re Not Crazy - You’re Grieving!!!

11:30 a.m. ET, 10:30 a.m. CT,  9:30 a.m. MT,  8:30 a.m. PT.
 
Duration: 90 Minutes.
 
FREE online event. AARP Membership not required.
 
This session will help you understand your feelings and cope with your loss.
 
About the Event.
 
After a significant loss, it’s common to feel like we’re going crazy. We’re in shock and disoriented, and time seems out of whack. Our moods swing wildly.
 
But you’re not going crazy - you’re grieving.
 
During this webinar, we’ll examine six steps for surviving loss:
 
[1] Know that your intense grief is normal and necessary.
 
[2] Do whatever you need to do to feel safe and comfortable.
 
[3] Acknowledge the illusion of having control.
 
[4] Tell your story.
 
[5] Embrace your spirituality.
 
[6] Step toward truly living even as you grieve.
