(VIRTUAL) Living Person's Guide to Dying presents: Grieving the Loss of Normal w/ Dr. Svetlana LeedsWednesday May 27, 2020
7:00 PM until 8:30 PM
In conjunction with NIH and NLM, Sharon Public Library presents A Living Person's Guide to Dying, a multi-part speaker series about death and dying, green burials, digital estate planning, and more. Although death is an inevitable reality of life, we often delay conversations about the topic until after the fact--a habit that can create unnecessary stress or confusion about our end-of-life wishes. The Library is seeking to launch an honest, open series of discussions around this important topic.
Tonight, join Dr. Svetlana Leeds, PsyD, for a presentation on grieving the loss of our "normal." Our individual and collective worlds have been turned upside, and we are all going through a complex grief process that often feels like a bad roller coaster that has no end point. This discussion is geared towards helping us explore and identify the different ways in which we may all be responding to the loss of our normal. We will identify grounding techniques that help us focus on what we can control and we will discuss safe ways to keep what is out of our control from impacting every aspect of our new daily lives.
This program will take place on Zoom, a free videoconferencing program. Please email Assistant Director Miki Wolfe at email@example.com to register. Registration is required.
