Grief Recovery Program
Deb Langhans is back with more grief support. Here she is with more details…
Last December, I wrote a piece on grief – “Not So Happy Holidays…?” and shared my recent certification in grief recovery work using The Grief Recovery Method® (a comprehensive approach to grief recovery created 35 years ago by the internationally-recognized Grief Recovery Institute.)
We’re fortunate on this tiny island to have excellent, existing grief support resources; The Grief Recovery Institute programs I’m now certified to offer represent another different option for those still living with broken hearts. As you’ll read in the flyer attached, I’ll be offering an 8-week “support group” starting Monday, February 22 from 6:00-7:30 p.m. Please note: This is not a drop-in style or unstructured support group. The curriculum & action steps taught over the 8 weekly sessions build on each other & provide the skills & support participants need to complete unresolved grief over loss.
I’ve been touched & inspired by those who’ve contacted me since my December post. Two were grieving the painful loss of beloved pets; one admitted to still feeling sad & “stuck” around the loss of both parents who died decades ago. As I shared previously, my own mother’s death last July, along with my increasing involvement in end of life issues, motivated my experiencing The Grief Recovery Method® firsthand. I still grieve this profound loss in my life, but as I’ve continued to practice the skills & activities learned in this powerful program, the quality of my life no longer feels compromised by my grief.
I’m excited to be offering this “support group” starting in February. If this speaks to your heart or a friend’s or loved one’s, please let me hear from you as soon as possible. Only a few slots remain in this first program & the deadline for registration with payment is Monday, 2/15.
One final thought: If you’d like more information about the 7-week, one-on-one Grief Recovery Method® program(s) I’ve begun offering in my studio, please don’t hesitate to contact me about that as well. Both programs include the book, handouts & effective action steps. While the one-on-one work is, of course, more private, the group work offers the witnessing of others’ inspiring stories & process & can enable supportive partnerships. Either program is empowering & deserving of your consideration.
