 * EAP August Website Theme and Online Seminar- SAYING GOODBYE: Honoring the Process of Grief and Loss 

Losing someone or something close to you can bring up deep feelings of grief and sadness. The death of a loved one, divorce, or other event is typically followed by a period of grieving. The idea of honoring that grief process refers to both your own personal grief and that suffered by those around you. A grieving person must be given the space to heal in his or her own time. Your Employee Assistance Program is available to help you understand the process of grief and healthy ways to respond to it.
