Grief and the Holidays 

The feeling of sadness and remorse due to the loss of a loved one is often amplified during the holiday season.

This is a very common reaction for someone who has recently lost a loved one. Suddenly, it becomes clear that when the holidays come, they bring in grief. This course provides caregivers with tools for helping others in this situation. This course corresponds to the Federal regulation L596.
