There is no roadmap for grief, and when you are grieving your sibling with a disability, it can feel really lonely and isolating. Often times, there are other emotions like guilt and relief that are involved, and we don’t know how to navigate these emotions. This webinar will address our basic needs and how grief can show up in different ways. When we know ourselves better, we are able to recognize and identify what we’re feeling and then able to have a bit more control of our emotions and actions. This free webinar is presented by Shruti Tekwani, licensed mental health counselor and coach.
