Participants have the opportunity to:

  • Learn skills to help manage grief.
  • Learn on-going self-care strategies.
  • Have a safe space in which to share stories and memories of deceased loved ones.
  • Participate in activities and exercises designed to assist in moving through the grieving process.
  • Share resources and ask questions of other group members related to practical issues and concerns.six
