Our culture is full of hidden messages that continue myths about what grief is and how people should cope. Instead of being helpful, these myths and misconceptions can actually keep us stuck in our grief. This webinar will cover six myths about grief, why they are still prevalent, and how we can successfully address them in order to move forward though grief.

This webinar is presented by the TAPS Institute for Hope and Healing®.
