A Two Part Workshop Series
For Family Members of Adults with Serious Chronic Conditions
For family caregivers, well-being and resiliency depends on their ability to cope with the challenges, losses and adversities they face. Coping is generally not a life skill that is taught and many do not pay attention to their means of coping with awareness.
In these two 3-hour workshops ideally spaced 1 week apart, participants learn to apply the 3-A components to acknowledge, assess, assist themselves in developing better coping skills by
Relating coping to situational loss in dealing with family illness
Identifying over 16 coping styles
Strategizing to cope better
The workshop is based on the strength-building regimen presented in the book Keeping It Together featuring the components of the 3-A Coping Tool.

It has been acknowledged without dispute that caring for a family member with chronic illness is a grieving experience. The grief can be expressed in many ways and can have a significant impact on the ability to cope.
