Coping Skills: What’s My Story? Challenging Your Grief Narrative
We request you sign up at least 24 hours before you attend this session so that we can ensure the integrity of the group and answer any questions you may have.
Do you ever wonder if you could change your grief narrative? Reshape the way you see yourself and your life? We can move and mold our stories; we can invite our grief to do the same. In this participatory coping skills workshop, we will embark on a journey of self discovery, inviting curiosity to lead the way into the stories we tell ourselves and others.
We'll be using the online offerings in the month of February to think about the ways we tell our stories. We'll think about the ways we describe ourselves, our loved ones, and our lives. We'll practice ways to take down, record, or represent the events and emotions that become our narratives. We'll consider questions like whether or not grief is the biggest part of the story, for how long this may be true, and whether or not there are other storylines weaving their way through our lives.
We've plotted (pun intended) online sessions for February along these lines - online groups geared toward building supportive communities where your stories are safe, workshops that help us learn how to listen to ourselves and others, and coping skills sessions to help us discover what we want to say and explore new ways of self-expression.
Online groups are peer-led, facilitated sessions where there’s never pressure to share, but always an opportunity. Whether you attend once or regularly, you will always be welcomed. We value the importance of knowing that there are “places” we can show up and feel supported and inspired, and you can decide to connect with us every week or whenever it’s convenient or compelling.
Please remember that, while we anticipate that these groups will become engaging, encouraging community gathering “places,” you never have to wait if you need to talk. We’re always here for you, 24 hours, 7 days a week, year-round, at 202-588-8277.
