About Surviving the Holidays Events

GriefShare Surviving the Holidays is a warm, encouraging, and helpful event. Featuring video instruction and group discussion, it helps you deal with the intense pain of grief during the holiday season.

Local churches around the world sponsor these seminars. A typical one lasts approximately two hours. Here’s what you’ll do during a Surviving the Holidays event:

  • Watch a 40-minute video, filled with practical tips on how to survive the holidays
  • Hear from others in your group who are dealing with grief this holiday season
  • Have the opportunity to share how grief is affecting you (if you’d like)
  • Receive a personal Holiday Survival Guide
