“It’s Okay…say their name” the unique journey of losing a child to addiction.

Terri Roman is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. She is now retired from many years of school social work. She dedicates her to time to facilitating the GRASP group. This group is a community of people who have lost a loved one to addiction. Terri understands this loss all to well. She lost her 28-year old daughter, Julie in 2015. Terri will share her grief journey, and help us understand the isolation, stigma and special kind of pain that accompanies this loss. She will also share how to walk the path with people who experience this loss. Terri Roman, LCSW •September 19, 2018 •11:30 to 1:00 p.m.
