Wellness Workshop: Discussing Grief

Location: Linda and Lou Mazawey Education and Support Center 3953 Pender Drive, Suite 100, Fairfax, VA 22030
Description: Many think of grief as something that only happens after a loved one’s death. However, as a caregiver, you may experience grief for your loved with a diagnosis of dementia while they are still living. You may grieve the loss of the person you knew or the life you shared together. It is important to recognize this grief and take steps to manage your stress as a caregiver.

Pete Shrock, Co-Founder of Legacy Navigator, will be leading the discussion for this wellness workshop.

Speaker:
Pete Shrock has been immersed in active crisis support for over 15 years. He trained grief experts responding to 9/11 and the shootings at Sandy Hook and Virginia Tech. He works directly with U.S. special forces Gold Star families; and created programs for grieving children at Comfort Zone Camp, gang violence workers and gang members in Chicago and Los Angeles, New York Life insurance agents processing death claims, and National Fallen Firefighters. Pete cuts through academic language with a direct, hands-on approach to grief and stressful life transitions. When he isn’t traveling to support those in distress, he lives in Richmond with his wife and two daughters. Pete is also responsible for a grief blog known as ‘Ask Pete.’
