Course Description

Is anyone ever prepared for widowhood? Widows and widowers grieve for their spouse and grieve for their former way of life. Widowhood is a time of transition. How might the challenges in the first year of widowhood be different from those in the years that follow? How does the surviving partner adjust to living alone and being an uncouple? Every widowhood journey is unique. Presentations and group discussions will reflect on different ways that individuals may progress through stages of widowhood, usually emerging with a new identity. The focus is on creating a positive approach in moving forward with your life. Topics include: widowhood journey, widowhood identity, dealing with loneliness and living alone, handling holidays and anniversary dates, rebuilding your live as an uncouple, searching for happiness, and building resilience in widowhood. The course will include lectures, exercises, and facilitated group discussions. | Lecture (plus questions); Facilitated discussion
