A forum on Understanding and Approaching Grief will be held on Sunday, Jan. 14, from 2 to 4 p.m. The event will take place at Epiphany Lutheran Church, 1100 Colonial Road, Harrisburg.
The forum will be presented by Lynn Shiner, whose ex-husband murdered her two children on Christmas Day 23 years ago, and Lisa Zoll, a clinical psychiatric specialist and social work instructor at Temple University. They will discuss how to recognize common reactions to grief, examine a less structured approach to grief, explore the importance of encouraging reflection and storytelling, and share advice on how to help family and friends through the grieving process.
The presenters' self-help book titled "Grief: The Event, The Work, The Forever" will be available for purchase. Light refreshments will be available. Proceeds will benefit Epiphany Lutheran Church.
