"The key to recovery from grief is action, not time"
- the Grief Recovery Method
Though a heightened understanding of grief can help, the cornerstone of the Grief Recovery Method is this:
"To heal from loss, you must first deal with your broken heart."
Our workshop will do all of this and more.
YOU are not broken!
You CAN DO THIS!
We can help.
You will be taught and guided through the Grief Recovery Method's tools by Certified Grief Recovery Specialists: Animal Hospice Counselor-Educator and AHELP Project Director Michelle Nichols, M.S. and Certified Life Coach, DarylAnne Brooke. This is not a drop-in group. With the exception of skipping 4/24, YOU MUST ATTEND 9 CONSECUTIVE SESSIONS, to recieve the INAUGURAL GROUP SPECIAL. If you aren't interested in pet loss grief and bereavement, you can skip the first session and just attend sessions 2-9.
You'll better understand why grief surrounding pet loss builds upon unresolved past experiences. You'll be encouraged to consider loss of other animal and human loved ones or loss of a partner through separation or death. The Grief Recovery Method can also be used to address unresolved losses such as: death of a human loved one, separation of a spouse, unemployment, and loss of health. If you are like us, you may find that this action Method will provide you with tools to move toward healing and has similar effects as one-on-one therapy.
Each week, you can expect:
- To better appreciate grief as a normal and natural emotional response to loss.
- To better understand your grief - education is power!
- To learn techniques and tools you will work through outside of the group.
- Time for you and your partner to share and practice the exercises.
