November 11: Thankfulness in the Midst of Grief

Thankfulness in the midst of grief and grieving sounds paradoxical, even offensive. But gratitude can be voiced by grievers even as they also voice deep loss. There can be greater clarity of acts by others for which they are grateful; gratitude for presence not abandonment; surprising pride for their own capacities to care for loved ones, even unexpected capacities; and gratitude for community resources. Explore and discuss the paradoxes of thankfulness in the midst of grief and grieving. Attention to how and when to introduce or acknowledge thankfulness will be emphasized.

Presented by Ted Bowman
