Grief is a catalyst for change in families and individuals. Families adjust to new roles, new boundaries, and new demands as a result of loss. In order to avoid crisis and transition into greater flourishing during this time, the family uses processes of adaptation such as shared meaning-making, restructuring, and problem-solving.

In this lecture, we will review important processes of adaptation, examine how they work together to encourage family resilience, and apply them to a grief example. Register: https://us06web.zoom.us/webinar/register/2016376994876/WN_tueBXsn6TLe8BpWjiOG18A

Presented by:
Jessica Barboza, MA, LMFT, EMDR-Trained

As a marriage and family therapist, Jessica passionately serves individuals, couples, and families as they seek to develop deep and meaningful relationship connections. She has experience working with pre-marital couples, high-conflict couples, adoptive/foster families, and blended families. Jessica’s primary area of expertise is working with individuals and families who are navigating loss, grief, or other traumatic experiences.

She also has an extensive background in statistics, research methods and marriage and family psychology.

If you're interested in pursuing a Master's in Psychology, you'll be able to ask her questions about:
+ integration of Catholic-Christian teachings in all the courses

"The phenomenon of depression reminds the Church and all society how important it is to provide people, and especially youth, with examples and experiences that can help them to grow on the human, psychological, moral and spiritual levels."
- St. John Paul II on the Theme of "Depression" (2003)

As we continue National Depression and Mental Health Screening Month, we celebrate the feast day of St. John Paul II!

If you or anyone you know suffers from depression or is experiencing distress in any aspect of mental health, know that there is healing and hope.

St. John Paul II, pray for us!
