Annual Hold The Door Day
be held on October
17, 2009 at the
Credit Suisse Building, 11 Madison Ave., NYC
Hold the Door Day is a free event
that will empower attendees to grow through loss and
adversity (e.g., loss of a loved-one, cancer, divorce,
job-loss, affected by a natural disaster) by providing
workshops and hands-on activities.
In addition to our traditional Growth
Program, Hold The Door For Others is proud to announce
a new Helper Program that
has been added to our Hold The Door Day.
Helper Program: Our
Helper Program is for people who want to learn supporting
skills to help their loved ones or friends grow through
loss and adversity.
Growth Program: Our
traditional program is for people who have personally
experienced loss, adversity, or crisis.
When you register for Hold The Door
Day, we encourage you to bring someone who may benefit
from either of our programs, the Helper Program or the
original Growth Program. In order to provide the best
possible learning experience, the two programs will
run at the same time and location, but be facilitated
Please note the Helper Program is not
for professionals, such as social workers or psychologists.
The days activities will include:
• Developing the necessary life-skills
to live with loss and adversity and thrive
• Learning strategies to increase your ability
to bounce-back from hardships
• Connecting with others who have experienced
various kinds of loss
• Boosting your Emotional Intelligence (self-awareness,
emotional management, etc.)
• Receiving resources that will prepare you for
future loss and help you grow from existing loss
• Learning relaxation techniques, and other ways
to take care of yourself during tough times
Hold the Door Day programs/activities
are facilitated by experienced Growth Consultants, including
Ph.D.’s and Keynote Speakers.
Activities and programming are tailored
for both adults and school-aged children.
