Topics Around Grief: The Myths of Grief

September 15, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm

  • This event has passed.

There are plenty of myths about grief such as “You’ll get over it” or “When you’re not crying, you’re not grieving”. In this session we will unearth many myths, why some (or many) of those myths can trouble us, and consider what we’d prefer people to know and believe about grief and bereavement. Please bring along any myths you feel need some scrutiny!

Feel welcome to arrive any time after 2pm to settle in, have a coffee and chat. We will commence the session at 2.30pm sharp.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Topics Around Grief sessions are different from TCF support group meetings, focussing on a particular topic, rather than “where we are at in our grief”. If you are new to TCF 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
