Find Inspiration and Hope

Please note this program is specifically designed for survivors grieving the death of a military loved one.

No matter where you are in your grief journey, support and connection await you at a TAPS Seminar. Both regional seminars and national seminars are inclusive, discussion-based events that include workshops for understanding and processing grief and small-group sharing sessions where you can connect with peers. TAPS Seminars are held in conjunction with TAPS Good Grief Camps for young survivors.

Over family-style meals, during workshops, and while participating in special events, you’ll get to know other surviving family members in a relaxed, welcoming setting. TAPS Seminars give you space to feel the encouragement and hope that you can heal and pride in sharing your loved one with others.

You’ll leave a TAPS Seminar with information and inspiration, knowing you have been among people who understand.

Find a TAPS Seminar near you. If you're looking for other ways to connect with peers, TAPS offers a variety of programs for survivors.
