aboutGRM

The Grief Recovery Method is an evidenced-based process developed by the Grief Recovery Institute and used by Certified Grief Recovery Specialists for assisting grievers.

“Grief does not change you. It reveals you.”

The Grief Recovery Method® is proven action program for moving beyond death, divorce, career, financial, health and other losses.  Incomplete recovery from grief can have a lifelong negative effect on the capacity for happiness. 

 

Based on a proven program, The Grief Recovery Method® offers grievers the specific actions needed to move beyond loss. 

Have you heard these myths about grief?

  • Time heals all wounds

  • Replace the loss and move on

  • Grieve alone

  • Be strong for others

  • Bury your feelings

  • Stay busy

 

Grieving people want and need to be heard, not fixed.  These myths can keep grieving people feeling misunderstood and trapped in a cycle of despair, stagnation, and depression.

Although there are no stages or feelings that every single griever experiences there are some common symptoms of grief.

 

Do you relate to any of these?

·    Do you feel tired?
·    Do you feel emotionally drained?
·    Do you pretend to be happy?
·    Do you isolate?
·    Have your eating or sleeping patterns changed?
·    Do fond memories of your loved one turn painful?

 

If you answered yes to any of these you are probably experiencing unresolved grief.

The Grief Recovery Method® provides a safe environment for you to look at your old beliefs about dealing with loss, which losses have affected your life, and take actions that will lead you to complete unresolved emotions that may still be causing you pain.

It’s an action-based group that meets eight times and involves reading and writing assignments outlined in "The Grief Recovery Handbook", – 20th Anniversary Expanded Edition.
