The loss of a loved one is perhaps the most difficult part of life, and no one is fully prepared for it. This program will summarize current thinking about how we grieve—perspectives quite different from Kubler-Ross’ five-stage model with which so many are familiar.

This group is designed to help members change patterns of thinking in order to feel better.

This Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) group will offer tools to effectively deal with the challenges of aging. CBT cannot remove your problems, but it can help you deal with them in a more positive way. Group members will have the opportunity to learn that there are others who are dealing with similar issues and who share similar thoughts, feelings and concerns.
