Surviving the Holidays. The holiday season can be a challenging time for individuals who’ve experienced a loss of relationship, family member, separation or divorce. During this time there is a lot of focus on family, social events, yearly traditions, expectations and “cheer” the emotions scan blindside you. There is an opportunity to lessen the emotional impact by knowing what to expect and being prepared.  “Surviving the Holidays” is here to help.
