Hope for the Holidays is for those who are grieving the loss of a loved one and wish to join in a supportive and caring group to help them through the holidays. It will be offered from 4-6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1, at Essentia Health-St. Joseph's Medical Center in Brainerd.

When a loved one is missing from holiday traditions, it can cast a harsh spotlight on pain and loss. The flood of memories triggered by the season's sights, sounds and smells can create an overwhelming yearning for the return of the absent loved one.

The pressure to balance personal grief with the expectations of "joyful" social obligation is a common experience. The Hope for the Holidays presentation, facilitated by professionals, will provide an opportunity for honest dialogue and tools for coping with the upcoming weeks.

For more information about grief support and to register for Hope for the Holidays, call 218-828-7442 or 218-828-7464.
