This will be an interactive and informative workshop exploring how to support a friend who is grieving or facing a tough time.  It can often be hard to know what to say or do when you care about someone or if your friend is experiencing difficulties.  

This time together will explore:
- How to support in ways that are useful for you and them
- What words / phrases are helpful and what not to say
- Tips, strategies and tools

This workshop will appeal to a wide range of people and be useful both personally and professionally.
