Feelings of loneliness after the death of a spouse can be debilitating. And yet, the fear of meeting and forming a bond with someone new often prevents people from moving forward and finding a relationship again.
Relationship After Loss is a free four-part workshop from The Elizabeth Hospice for widows and widowers who are seeking answers to questions like “How will I know when I’m ready to start dating again?” and “Where do I go to meet someone?” Sessions will take place every Wednesday during the month of September (September 4, 11, 18 and 25), from 11 am to 12:30 pm at The Elizabeth Hospice office, 930 Canterbury Place, Escondido. Space is limited and attendees are required to register by August 23. Call 760-737-2054 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Participants will gain feelings of hopefulness in establishing fulfilling relationships and learn how to navigate the emotional minefield of dating after the death of a spouse,” said Michelle Brown, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. “They will receive valuable information about re-entering the dating world and connect with others who are facing similar circumstances.”
