Enduring Love and "Continuing Bonds" in Grief:
Michelle Bronzo, MA, LPC, CT, will lead a workshop for individuals living with loss based on Dr. Robert A. Neimeyer's premise that grieving does not come to an endpoint: "Closure is for bank accounts, not for love accounts." The topics discussed include myths of the grieving process, how love endures after death, and concrete ways you can establish "continuing bonds." This is an opportunity for participants to evaluate and develop their own continuing bonds practice so they may have a deeper connection with their deceased loved one going forward.
