This group is designed to give participants an opportunity to talk about strained family relationships – whether it is with a parent, a sibling, a grandparent, a son or a daughter. These relationships, when stressed or tense, are so painful to endure because family means so much to us. If you cut the ties, or someone in your family has cut you off – this group will help you explore your issues of grief, anger, regret and forgiveness in a safe environment with other people who understand.
Tuesdays, from 1 – 2 pm
Facilitators: Lisa-Loraine Smith, LCSW, JFS Executive Director and Rabbi Vicki Axe, Congregation Shir Ami
Location: JFS, One Holly Hill Lane, Greenwich
