Project Description

Grief and Expressive Arts Group 

This is an on-going group for people who have experienced the death of a loved one and are looking for a safe, supportive, gentle, and creative space to move through the grief. Group grief work fosters connection and support. The creative arts offer ways to honor and express our experience of loss and provide meaningful coping strategies. In this group, facilitated by professional therapists, you will have an opportunity to process your feelings and thoughts in supportive conversation, and integrate your experience through accessible creative arts projects.

Grief can feel very lonely, come witness and share with others who have experienced loss. Pre-registration is required.

Date/Time: Mondays 6:30-8:30pm beginning Feb. 1, 2016.

Fee: $80/session.

Location: Noe Valley, San Francisco
