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 can 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. We invite you to join us for this one-time session on Thursday, November 16th, 7:00-9:00 pm at the Poplar House. For additional information, please contact Paul or Christine Stewart @ 919-639-9683 or Sonia Jackson @ 919-521-1834.
