The Power of Words (An Online ‘Topics Around Grief’ Discussion Workshop)

  • This event has passed.

“Words have the power to transform one’s day from happy to sad or vice versa…”

Please join us in a relaxed and welcoming environment to reflect upon times when the words of others have (words, a sentence, a story, or an act) left us feeling hurt, even devastated … or, alternately, deeply grateful. Bereavement is a time when the power of words can seem especially strong.

We will carefully explore what it was about the words, the sentence, the context in which it was said, etc. that had its power in helping or hindering. Perhaps it wasn’t the words themselves, but the tone, that made the difference.

Unlike the famous saying, our words and the words of others can hurt, but equally they can enliven and enrich.

This session will be held online via Zoom. We email the Zoom link to you 2-3 days prior to the session.

Please join any time after 2:20pm to settle in. We will then commence the session at 2:30pm.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Topics Around Grief sessions are different from TCFV support group meetings, focussing on a particular topic. If you are new to TCFV and the experience of discussing your grief, we highly recommend you first attend group meetings for a period of time, as Topics Around Grief sessions have a singular focus and cannot meet all needs.For group meeting details, please feel welcome to call us on 9888 4944 / 1300 064 068
