Coping Strategies Workshop

It was our virgin voyage of our Coping Strategies for Grief & Loss Workshop at Ellwood Thompson’s The Beet. You think I would have removed the geeky voice amplifier. The room was packed with 50 or more attendees. The sharing was awesome and we got great feedback from the group so we can adjust as we go forward.

We had people who came suffering all kinds of losses and just being in the room together, sometimes laughing, sometimes crying together was part of what I loved.

Just making the effort to come out was huge. And Karla and I especially appreciated the ten or so social workers, ministers, holistic medicine, acupuncturists and other professionals who came for the sole purpose of learning more about how they can support those they serve.

Thank you to Mary Jane Hogue and Bliley’s Funeral Home for your sponsorship, and to Ellwood Thompson for hosting, and my friend Mehmet Saltug for the beautiful cover art for the ebook.

I lost my youngest son, Charles, 20, to suicide June 5, 2015. As talented and funny as Charles was, letting other people know they matter was his greatest gift. And now the legacy I try and carry forward in my son's memory.
