Getting to the Other Side of Grief – Grand Rapids

  • Wednesday, May 8
    3:00pm - 4:30pm

Join us for a FREE Visiting Experts Workshop!

Presented by Robert C. DeVries, D.Min., Ph.D. and Susan Zonnebelt-Smeege, R.N., Ed.D.

Maybe you’ve lost a loved one, received a terminal diagnosis, or had to move a loved one to a care unit. These all come with grief.

In this FREE workshop we will go over:

  • Myths and misunderstandings of grief – both in death and major life changes
  • Tackling unwanted changes and losses in healthy ways
  • Developing a “new normal” and helpful suggestions to heal
