Workshop for Adults Who Have Lost an Adult Sibling

Friday, March 19, 2010 - Danbury, CT

The death of a sibling is a tragedy for the entire family, not just for parents. To help support the special grief experienced by siblings, Healing Hearts will offer a free workshop “When You Have Lost an Adult Sibling” to be held on April 7, 2010 from 7:00-8:30 p.m. The workshop will take place at The Healing Hearts Center for Grieving Children & Families at 73 Stadley Rough Road in Danbury, Connecticut. If you lost a sibling as an adult, this workshop will provide a venue for discussing your grief. Participants will find insight and learn strategies to help cope with their loss.

The workshop facilitator is Marita Repole, EdD, who is a psychologist for Danbury Public Schools and has extensive experience in assessment and counseling. The Healing Hearts Center for Grieving Children & Families, a program of Regional Hospice, offers numerous support groups, workshops and programs to the public free of cost throughout the year.

For more information or to participate in the upcoming workshop, please call Healing Hearts at (203) 792-4422.
