Tending to a Broken Heart:
This is is an opportunity to learn some essential information that Dr. Wolfelt has learned in his four decades of “companioning” thousands of people in grief. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from a best-selling author about how to integrate grief into your life, your living, and your loving. If you know anyone who would bene t from this opportunity to embrace hope and healing, please let them know about this program. We look forward to having you, your family, and your friends join us.
Understanding Grief Overload:
Grief overload occurs when someone experiences too many significant losses all at once or in a relatively short period of time. Our human minds and hearts have enough trouble coping with one loss at a time, but when a person has to integrate multiple losses simultaneously, the grief experience has many special features that both need and deserve attention. Come join us and have Dr. Alan Wolfelt take you on a journey into the lessons he has learned when supporting people that have encountered grief overload.
These programs will be held at the Johnson County Funeral Chapel & Memorial Gardens
11200 Metcalf Ave, Overland Park, KS 66210
