Managing Grief in the Recovery Process
Presented by: Jancey Wickstrom, AM, LCSW
Wednesday, March 21st
Losing loved ones and experiencing grief is a natural part of life. Nevertheless, just because something is natural does not make it easy. In the midst of managing your recovery you may find yourself faced with having to say goodbye to a loved one – a friend, family member, even a pet. This process deserves special attention, as your inclination to return to unhealthy ways of coping may come back at this emotional time.
Please join Jancey Wickstrom, Clinical Training Specialist for The Renfrew Centers, as she discusses how to manage grief during the recovery process, one of our most requested webinar topics. The various stages of grief will be explored and we will be addressing the difficult and very personal issue of losing loved ones to our own illness - eating disorders. We look forward to having you participate in yet another invigorating presentation to help further your recovery.
