Anticipatory Grief Workshop for LGBTQ+ Caregivers

March 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Join FCA for a 90-minute virtual workshop to better understand how anticipatory grief might be affecting you as a LGBTQ+ caregiver. Subjects Covered During the Workshop: defining anticipatory grief, identifying ways in which anticipatory grief may be affecting you, discuss strategies to help process anticipatory grief.

The feelings of grief tied to loss are an ongoing part of our role as caregivers when looking after family or friends suffering from chronic or terminal illnesses. We grieve the gradual loss of those we care for due to their loss of cognition, mobility, or other aspects that defined them. We grieve the loss of parts of who we are as we prioritize caregiving over personal activities that might have recharged us, brought us joy, or even offered us an escape from our day-to-day.

Many of us also experience the weight and pain of the loss of the person we are caring for before their death, yet never identify these feelings as anticipatory grief, or understand the impact this grief has on our well-being.
