Ten Beliefs that Make Grief Support Groups Work

Ten Beliefs that Make Grief Support Groups Work | griefministerdotcom:

"Mourning is the outward behavior that is our response to the grief inside us. Grief is a process, a journey, not a one-time event. The work of grief is facilitated when the mourner is given comfort, support, encouragement, time and emotional space to grieve by those around them. Favorable life circumstances and loving support can help move the process along. Mourners can benefit from being with a peer group which has suffered similar emotions and experiences in loss. Mourners will often talk through or work through their concerns and fears if provided a safe, confidential, caring environment. Providing a family systems approach to grief support can be essential to the emotional healing of both grieving adults and children. A person’s feeling on the grief journey are their feelings. It isn’t up to us to talk them out of their feelings or to try to change the way they are feeling."
