Support and Share Night – February 4th 2020

February 4 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Our Guest Speaker for February 4th is Lorrie Beaton.  Lorrie will be speaking to us about Making Meaning After Loss.

 

Margaret (Lorrie) Beaton, MA, RP(Q), C. Hyp. is Program Director with BFO Ottawa. Lorrie has dedicated her life to providing support to those that are grieving, and has worked with us in various ways since 2009. Lorrie will discuss the impact of finding meaning after loss, while honouring the natural pace of mourning, and how making meaning can help to carve out a path of one’s choosing after the death of a loved one.

For 35 years, this monthly program has been supporting individuals and families on their journey of grief.  The night begins with an educational talk, followed by an opportunity to connect with others who are grieving a similar loss to yours in one of our 8 support groups.  Groups are led by trained facilitators who have grieved and experienced a loss similar to yours.  You are not alone.

The evening begins with our guest speaker followed by break-out sessions into 9 different  peer support groups:

  • for Youth (high school age)
  • loss of Child
  • loss of Perinatal (miscarriage, stillbirth, infant)
  • loss of Spouse
  • loss of Parent/Other
  • loss of Sibling/Friend
  • by Suicide
  • by MAiD (Medical Assistance in Dying)
  • by Substance Use
