A free community presentation on the tools and skills needed for working through emotional loss, such as loss of a loved one or divorce, will be held 7 p.m. June 23.

The event will be conducted at the Education Center, Christ Lutheran Church, 25816 N. Tournament Road.

Grief counselor Jeff Zhorne, director of The Grief Program, will share his personal story of grief.

Zhorne believes the pain of grief won’t go away by itself, and that no one can recover alone.

“Grieving people aren’t broken — they don’t need to be fixed,” said Zhorne. “They need to be listened to with dignity, honor and respect.”

Zhorne said the program is also for individuals experiencing regret, wishing things had been different or suffering the loss of hopes, dreams and expectations.

“The key is communicating the undelivered emotional truth in an atmosphere of respect, dignity and safety, without judgment, criticism or evaluation,” he said.
