[LISTEN] Surviving the festive season after the death of a loved one
If you are mourning the death of a loved one, the festive season can be overwhelming.
According to Coralie Deas, who is the facilitator of a once-off workshop called Surviving The Holidays, knowing what to expect and being prepared can lessen the impact.
At the seminar you will receive support and be part of a discussion group, helping you face the holidays.
Deas says it is not always the first Christmas that has proven to be difficult.
If people haven't actually worked through their grief they can carry it with them for many years and sometimes with the Christmas holidays, it is not the first one that is the most significant because you are still in a bit of shock, that the second Christmas can be even more depressing than the first.Coralie Deas, Facilitator - Surviving The Holidays workshop
People can go into a complete blank and not know how they are going to approach invitations. I think it is important to discuss this with your hostess and say ok, I will accept your invitation but please hold it lightly, I might change my mind at the last minute.Coralie Deas, Facilitator - Surviving The Holidays workshop
