A Practical Guide to Surviving the Holidays

November 19, 2019

Workshop will be held on Tuesday, November 19 from 7-9pm. 

Not everyone faces the holidays with joy and excitement, and even those who do are sometimes overcome by sadness because this year will be different. Perhaps there’s been a change in family dynamics due to a divorce, or the death of a loved one, or the loss of a job. Maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed by all you think your expected to do – all the gifts to pick out and pay for, the meals that need to be made, the cookies that need to be baked and decorated, the cards that need to be addressed, the parties that need to be attended. The list goes on and on!

You are not alone. Come hear what Marianne Coad has to say about how we can get control of the holidays. Marianne will give us some great advice and teach us helpful coping skills as we learn how to experience the holiday season in a healthier way. You will also have a chance to talk with others who have had experiences and feelings similar to yours. This workshop will help you find the inner strength you need as we explore ways to approach the holidays with hope.
