Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare will offer Faces of Grief, a six-week adult grief group to support adults who are grieving the loss of a loved one. The group will meet Wednesdays, June 1 through July 13 from 5:30-6:45 p.m. at the Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare Wooster office, 1900 Akron Road.

David Hargrave, LSW, CCTP, CGCS, bereavement counseling professional with Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare, will lead the group.

Topics covered during the group sessions include myths about grief, common and normal grief reactions, different grieving styles, the four tasks of mourning, acknowledging the secondary losses, factors that influence the grief journey, and taking care of yourself during the journey of grief.

The Faces of Grief group provides a venue for sharing experiences, discussing challenges and learning about coping strategies along the grief journey. These sessions are designed to help adult grievers understand the many aspects of grief, help them with processing the pain and help them adjust to a world without their loved one.

During the Faces of Grief group, Hargrave will lead participants in identifying and processing the various ways grief presents itself. It is not necessary to share openly in a group setting to receive support. The weekly curriculum and insight from others can generate hope and clarification.

While the event is free and open to the public, registration is required. To register, email PathwaysOfHope@lifecarehospice.org or call 330-264-4899.
