It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, other family member or a friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel.
This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about many things you’ve never faced before. GriefShare groups help you face the challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.
About the GriefShare Series
GriefShare is made up of 10 sessions. Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements:
Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting-to-watch television, magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic re-enactments and on-location video.
Support Group Discussion
After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in your lives.
Workbook Based Personal Study & Reflection
During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling. Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.
