Grief Recovery 8-Week Group Program

About the Program Program Structure Program Dates

The From Grieving to Healing Grief Recovery 8-Week Group Program helps you to:

  • Recognize and identify your losses in a safe, confidential group environment
  • Implement a step-by-step action plan to acknowledge the losses that are causing you emotional pain and regain a sense of well-being
  • Familiarize yourself with the over 40 types of losses that one can experience in a lifetime
  • Learn the six myths about dealing with grief and recognize how these myths have affected your life and healing journey
  • Acquire a “tool kit” that you can rely on to recover from existing and future losses
  • Discover and complete all of the undelivered communications that accrue in relationships
  • Develop correct action choices to establish a new pattern of behavior when addressing grief and loss

The Right Grief Support Program Can Help You Move Beyond Loss & Discover New Possibilities for Your Life! Research has shown that having a support system has many positive benefits, such as higher levels of well-being, better coping skills, and a longer and healthier life. Studies have also shown that following a support program can help with improved communication and interpersonal skills, greater self-acceptance and self-esteem, and the ability to change self-defeating behaviors/habits.

The From Grieving to Healing Grief Recovery 8-Week Group Program includes:

  • Eight (8), 2-hour action-based group sessions led by a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist (CGRS) – group sessions will occur once a week on a pre-set schedule
  • A Completion Ceremony which includes a personalized Completion Certificate and will take place on the last meeting (Session 8 of the pre-set schedule)
  • 20th Anniversary Edition of The Grief Recovery Handbook: The Action Program for Moving Beyond Death, Divorce and Other Losses, including Health, Career, and Faith by John W. James and Russell Friedman, founders of The Grief Recovery Institute
  • Accountability Support Partner(s) to share your weekly assignments and keep you on track – once you complete the program, you may decide to continue to work with your Accountability Support Partner(s) beyond the duration of the program
  • Access to From Grieving to Healing resources to help you recover from your loss and take actions to reclaim and rebuild your life
  • From Grieving to Healing special keepsake
