WHAT IS THE GRIEF RECOVERY METHOD® ?
Unlike traditional grief counseling and grief support groups such as those offered by Hospice, this is a time limited, structured 8-week program. We use the Grief Recovery Handbook with homework assignments in which you discover your specific and unique way of handling grief in the past and how that may not have served you well. We teach you new coping skills that will last a lifetime.
THE GOAL OF THE GRIEF RECOVERY METHOD® is to help you complete your
relationship to the pain, isolation, and loneliness caused by significant
emotional loss. While death and divorce may seem to be the most obvious losses,
our groups are not limited to a particular type of loss.
WHAT IS GRIEF/DEFINITIONS OF GRIEF: Grief is the normal and natural reaction to loss. Grief is the conflicting feelings caused by
the end of or change in a familiar pattern of behavior.
For difficult or painful
The feeling of reaching out for
someone who’s ALWAYS been there, only to find when we need them one more time,
they are not there. Grief is the feeling of reaching out for someone who was NEVER
there for me only to discover that when I need them one more time, they are STILL
WHAT IS UNRESOLVED GRIEF: Unresolved grief is almost always about things we wish we could’ve said
or done differently. For example, “I wish I had told Dad I loved him before it was
too late.” There are usually feelings attached to those unsaid things. Grief
Recovery is learning how to communicate those unsaid things so that they no
longer affect your capacity for happiness.*
