About the group:

This group is designed to help participants deal with feelings and experiences involved with grief and loss. There are no exact ‘rights or wrongs’ in dealing with loss, nor any specific timeframe where we expect to move beyond it. The death of someone significant in our lives affects each person uniquely and personally. It is through interacting with our emotions, as well as expressing them in a safe, supportive place that provides new beginnings and hope beyond our experienced loss. We want you to know that you are not alone! Throughout the length of our group, we will learn psychoeducation about grief and loss, build group connections and explore through experiential group therapy techniques.
