Surviving the Holidays is a helpful, encouraging seminar for people facing the holidays after the death of a loved one. The seminar offers practical suggestions and reassurance through video interviews with counselors, grief experts and other individuals who have experienced the holidays after their loved one’s death. While created for individuals grieving the death of a loved one, the seminar is relevant for anyone facing the holidays after a life change like divorce or the empty nest.
