Forum About Grief Slated

Jan 14, 2018 - 2:00 pm

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.

For more information, readers may contact Shiner at lshiner18@gmail.com or Zoll at lzoll@verizon.net.
