If someone we love is seriously ill, we naturally begin to grieve. This is anticipatory grief. It's normal, but can be confusing and painful. How do we love, live, and mourn at a time like this?

We don’t only experience grief after a loss—we often experience grief before.

If someone we love is seriously ill, or if we’re concerned about upcoming hardships of any kind, we naturally begin to grieve right now. This process of anticipatory grief is normal, but it can also be confusing and painful. This compassionate webinar will help you understand and befriend your grief as well as find effective ways to express it as you live your daily life.

When you attend this webinar, you will learn;

· What anticipatory grief is

· What causes anticipatory grief

· How anticipatory grief is different from regular grief

· Why grief and mourning are not the same

· How to care for and love someone who is dying
