Are you looking for a way out of the pain of grief?
Has the wind gone out of your sails, robbing your energy for daily responsibilities?
In this 7-session Grief Recovery Group you will learn why the words of well-meaning friends and family immediately following your loss may not have felt comforting, and why these words may have even made you angry or contributed to feeling depressed or sad.
Grief will continue to affect our lives and the lives of those around us adversely when we are forced to accept the many MYTHS ABOUT GRIEF:
Time heals all wounds
Replace the loss
Be strong for others
Bury your feelings
Break out of the painful
isolation of grief to join a supportive, confidential group seeking the
same goal in this grief recovery outreach.
Your loss may be from one of over 43 identified types of losses that cause grief.
Here are some examples:
- Death of a loved one
- Divorce or end of a relationship
- Loss of career
- Loss of a pet
- Loss of a substance dependency
- Loss of trust
- Loss of dreams
- Loss of security
- Loss of health
- Loss of a childhood due to abuse
Using The Grief Recovery Method you will learn how cumulative loss affects your current grief situation and how to deal with it.
Some groups or classes give you a lot of information about grief, but do not provide the space for you to process your loss.
Other support groups let you talk about your pain, but don't give you a ROAD MAP for how to find relief.
You will not only learn ABOUT grief, but you will also take the specific steps necessary to complete your grief. You will have an opportunity to release any guilt and regrets that have bothered you about your loss.
In the Metro Detroit area Individual Grief Counseling is also available using The Grief Recovery Method. Call (248) 929-5354 for a free consultation.
