Free Workshop On Grief and Regaining Joy

Stan Goldberg, PhD


Grief is an emotion that is pervasive. It can arrive on a passing breeze, the sounds of a familiar song, the taste of a loved one’s favorite food, or in the middle of the night when a hand reaches over and feels the empty side of a bed. While everyone who has lost a loved one knows the feeling, getting beyond it is unfathomable to many.


On September 30, 2013, Sutter Health will be sponsoring a free workshop facilitated by Stan Goldberg, Ph.D. for people who struggle with grief. His approach is unique: he’ll explore with participants ways of understanding why the loss of a loved one hurts as much as it does, and he’ll offer specific strategies for reintroducing joy in a person’s life.
