The One-on-One Action program is exactly what is suggests – you working on your own recovery guided by an experienced Certified Grief Recovery Specialist.
“Having the option of the one to one course was attractive to me as I felt I was likely to hold back from expressing my feelings, concerning the death
of my wife, in a group scenario. It quickly became apparent to me that I was getting so much more from the sessions than if I had read the Grief Recovery Handbool by mydelf. Some two months after finishing the course I certainly feel it has been of great benefit to me.”
Helping Children Deal with Loss
There are many Myths about dealing with sad emotions that confuse children:
• Time heals all wounds
• Replace the loss
• Cry alone
• Be strong for others
• Bury your feelings
• Don’t feel bad, have a cookie, you’ll feel better…
In this program you will learn how to replace these myths with practical guidance for your children.
• Recognize that grief is emotional, not intellectual. Avoid the trap of asking your child what is wrong, for he or she will automatically say, “Nothing.”
• Adults – Go first. Telling the truth about your own grief will make your child feel safe in opening up about his or her own feelings.
• Remember that every child is unique and each has a unique relationship to the loss event.
• Be patient. Don’t force your child to talk.
• Never Say “Don’t feel sad” or “Don’t feel scared.” Sadness and fear, the two most common feelings attached to loss of any kind, are essential to being human.
