Living with Loss: Changing Identity and Coping with Parent Loss (Telehealth Workshop)

May 26, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

“Living with Loss: Changing Identity and Coping with Parent Loss,” which was originally planned to take place on Chesapeake Life Center’s Pasadena campus, will most likely be offered online via a telehealth platform.

With Mother’s Day and Father’s Day dotting the spring calendar, those experiencing parental loss are faced with often painful reminders of what is lost and a search for what remains. When a parent dies, there are often layers of loss – the loss of a home, loss of connection with the past, loss of being “known”, or the loss of the expectation that someday the relationship might have changed. Sometimes the “natural order of things” does not bring comfort. Whether you are grieving the loss of a parent or someone who was like a parent, wherever you are in your grief process, whatever the relationship, you are welcome. This session will be held via telehealth from 6 to 8 p.m. May 26. Should stay at home restrictions be lifted by May 10, there is a possibility the event will occur in-person at our Pasadena location. The cost of the workshop is $10.

The center’s services are perhaps needed now more than ever in its history, as individuals and the community grapple with grief in physical isolation due to the COVID-19 health emergency. In response, the center has moved as many of its group and individual bereavement counseling as is feasible via telehealth. The team’s counselors have all received training in telehealth to be sure that their services meet best practice standards.

Registration is required for all groups and can be completed by calling 888-501-7077 or emailing griefinfo@chesapeakelifecenter.org. For details on telehealth bereavement services, visit www.hospicechesapeake.org/clc-covid-19.
