About the Event

On behalf of the Adirondack Death Care Community we would like to welcome you to participate in the Winter Series, focused on 'Reimagining our relationships with grief, death and loss.'

This portion of the series is based on the 'Expression and Exploration of grief, death and loss through art and writing.'

The Grief & Growth (G&G) Notebook class features a technique that utilizes collage, words, drawings, photos, and other images to help participants incorporate the grief of losing a loved one into their lives. The G&G Notebook is a personal and portable work of art.

Lauren McGovern will lead this class. She became familiar with the process nearly two decades ago, when she worked as a counselor with clients who'd experienced sexual assault. She guided clients to create a new narrative about themselves, their relationship with the abuser, and a healthy path forward. She applied the same process, calling it her Grief & Growth Notebook, when she needed to reframe the trauma of losing her teen son to suicide in September 2018. The term reframing refers to perspective: looking at a situation differently so the brain can focus on coping rather than rumination, hopefulness in conjunction with the heartache.

The intention is to provide a nurturing, supportive space for individuals to set-up a framework and start creating the initial pages of their own G&G Notebook during this afternoon class. Some supplies will be provided; however, participants will need to bring their own sketchbook-style notebook. While the G&G Notebook class is for those who are dealing with grief and loss, it's not a group therapy session nor a support group.
