Care Dimensions to offer free LGBTQ bereavement support group
December 21, 2015 – Care Dimensions will offer a free 8-week bereavement support group for LGBTQ identified adults of any age who are grieving the loss of a loved one. Participants in this identity-affirming space will make connections with one another as they explore the many feelings and facets of grief, foster coping skills, and support each other’s unique grief journey toward healing. The group begins on Monday, January 4 and runs until February 29 at The Meeting Point, 3464 Washington Street, Jamaica Plain from 6 – 7:30 p.m. The group will not meet on January 18.
Running the workshop is Katherin Hudkins, a Master of Social Work candidate at Simmons College and a Bereavement Intern at Care Dimensions, where she provides individual and group grief therapy. Her social service background includes experience working with diverse clients both domestically and in Latin America and as a volunteer with Silver Lining Mentoring as a mentor to a young person in foster care through the organization’s LGBTQ initiative. Katherin’s style is warm, welcoming, and strengths-based, and she is passionate about creating an identity-affirming space for LGBTQ folks of all genders to come together and process their experiences with grief and loss.
If you or someone you know is interested in participating in this group, or would like more information, please call 855-774-5100, email Grief@CareDimensions.org or visit www.CareDimensions.org.
