UK HR Work-Life Offers Help for Grief and Stress During the Holidays

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 18, 2018) — UK Human Resources' Work-Life will host a “Grief and Stress During the Holidays” workshop on Tuesday, Oct. 30, to offer ideas and tips for managing and coping with holiday heartache. Peggy Williams, CSW, a bereavement counselor with Bluegrass Care Navigators, will speak at the event.

While the holidays are often a time to gather and celebrate with friends and family, for many, the holidays can be a difficult time. With plans to be made for traveling, parties and meals, schedules are disrupted and added stressors often present themselves. 

For individuals who are grieving and mourning, the holiday season can be especially challenging. With more than 20 years of experience working with individuals and families who are grieving and mourning, Williams will discuss different emotions and reactions that can be expected as well as ideas for coping with them. 

To attend this event, you can register online. The event will begin 12:10 p.m., at the William T. Young Library Alumni Gallery.
