Registration opens on January 14th!
Most of us are great in the beginning stages of loss:
step 1: write a card
step 2: attend the funeral
step 3: drop off a hot dish (Midwest-speak for casserole)
But grief is a chronic condition, and the people we care about need support in the long-term. And when you’re afraid of doing or saying the wrong thing, it’s easier to do... nothing.
This e-course is designed to help anyone struggling with how to support a grieving person. It includes a combination of audio lessons led by Nora McInerny and psychologist Dr. Anna Roth, plus a downloadable workbook filled with actionable steps and handouts.
And because we've found that this kind of learning is best done alongside others, this time around the e-course includes a cohort component, featuring a virtual call facilitated by Dr. Adrienne VanZomeren (aka Dr. V) on January 28th at 5PM Central for folks taking the course to discuss the materials with other "students."
This course will help you:
- understand the physiological, emotional and psychological effects of grief on the person you care about -- and on yourself
- establish and maintain constructive ways to communicate with and support your griever
- identify your own reflexive pity responses and shift toward empathetic and compassionate communication and actions
Nora McInerny is the creator of the podcast Terrible, Thanks for Asking, the founder of Still Kickin, and a person who has devoted her life's work to bringing the hard things in life into daily conversation. She was voted Most Humorous by the Annunciation Catholic School Class of 1997.
