Managing Difficult Times   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "Certain times of the year are especially painful for a bereaved person. This handout designed to help manage these difficult times. Examples include the family holidays, especially the period between thanksgiving and new years day, the day of death, the deceased person's birthday, the bereaved person's birthday, a wedding anniversary after the loss of a spouse, the first day of school each year, mother's or father's day after the loss of a child, parent's anniversary or mother's or father's day after the loss of a parent. Or, if the deceased loved one especially enjoyed the fall, you might find that time of year especially difficult. The anniversary of becoming pregnant might be difficult for someone who has lost a child. The winter solstice might be hard for a person who lost a close friend with whom she had celebrated this date every year."
