Traumatic Grief Group
After the unexpected death of a loved one, it is common to feel isolated and disconnected from the world. Many people sense family and friends quickly tire of their pain, or do not understand the unique aspects associated after an unexpected death of a loved one. Often, as a result, they withdraw, disengage, or hide their pain.
Therapy Heals provides a weekly traumatic grief support group to help with the isolation and pain after an unexpected death. Therapy Heals grief groups address the needs of participants after an unexpected loss and build community and support to facilitate healing. Group time provides participants with a safe space to share experiences, learn from others, and gain new insights and tools to cope with their grief.
Participants repeatedly report that support group provides a unique space where:
- needs and experiences are understood
- grievers do not need to caretake for others
- all grief emotions are acceptable and
- grief has no timeline
