Coping With Guilt When You're Grieving Webinar
March 16, 2021 from 12:00 - 1:00 PM EST
Guilt is one of the most common emotions to experience after loss, but it can be the result of good people being much too hard on themselves. Although sometimes there really is something worth feeling guilty about, guilt can also result from good people being much too hard on themselves. We can sometimes expect way too much of ourselves and beat ourselves up when we don’t fulfill those expectations. It’s important to notice this kind of thinking when it occurs, because it can stand in our way of healthy grieving. In this webinar, Dr. David Feldman
will discuss common ways we can be way too hard on ourselves after a loss, along with tips about how to be kinder to ourselves. Presented by the TAPS Institute for Hope and Healing®, this webinar is free
and open to the public. Continuing education credit is not available.
