2022 Aftercare Workshops
The Living Legacy Foundation of Maryland (The LLF) Aftercare Team has decided to continue offering our workshops on a virtual platform into 2022. This decision has been made to minimize risk and protect our staff, partners, and community. We will continue to offer free virtual workshops to support those experiencing grief and loss until we feel safe to meet in person once again. Please check our listings below or follow The LLF on social media (linked at the bottom of this page) for information and updates on workshop offerings.
The Aftercare Team strives to ensure that our donor and donor-in-spirit families, as well as the Maryland community, have access to grief resources and support. We offer educational and supportive grief workshops throughout the year, provide grief counseling, and maintain a website with a variety of grief resources throughout Maryland: Community Grief Resources and Support at www.cgras.org.
Are you ready to attend a workshop?
- Do you feel you would benefit from peer support?
- Are you comfortable hearing and sharing personal stories about loss?
If you answered "yes" to both of the above, then a workshop may be beneficial to you.
Please note that the workshops offered by The LLF are both educational and supportive in nature. While they provide a safe space for individuals to share certain experiences and feelings, if you are struggling with particularly difficult emotions and need help processing some of the more sensitive details of your loss, it is recommended that you schedule an individual counseling session prior to attending a workshop. If you have additional questions or are in need of grief support or resources, please reach out to a member of our Aftercare Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410.242.7000.
Workshops held at The LLF office are handicap accessible.
Please arrive up to 15 minutes early for events to get checked in.
*Indicates a particular workshop is reserved for The LLF donor and donor-in-spirit families.
The LLF office is located a short walk from the yellow line bus UMBC via Kaiser route (Kaiser Medical Center stop). For more information, please look at the MTA website.
Returning to "Normal"
Sunday, September 18, 2022 | 1-3 p.m. | Held in-person at The LLF office and virtually via Zoom
After a major loss, it can feel like there is an expectation to get back into the normal swing of things. Managing home responsibilities, caregiving tasks, work and/or school demands may feel more difficult while grieving. Loss impacts our body, mind and behavior in profound ways and for varying amounts of time.
This workshop is available to adults (15+) who are looking to integrate a major loss into their life in a healthy way. Adults (15+) may join us for an educational and supportive discussion that will focus on understanding grief and its common reactions, managing stress, communicating needs with others, and exploring aspects of self-care.
RSVP for Returning to "Normal" by Wednesday, Sep. 14
If you have any questions or concerns prior to the event or need to cancel your registration, please contact us at 410-242-7000 ext. 1147 or email Aftercare@TheLLF.org.
