GriefShare Grief Recovery Seminars provide help and encouragement after the death of a spouse, child, family member, or friend and consist of 13 week sessions, but each session is self-contained so that you are not required to attend sequentially. You may begin at any of the 13 week sessions and may view the videos that you missed during any future seminars.
There is help and encouragement available for you during every session; whenever you may begin. You’ll find it to be a warm, caring environment and will come to see your group as an “oasis” on your journey through grief.
There are three key parts to your GriefShare experience:
1. Video Seminar - encouraging, information-packed videos featuring leading grief
2. Support Group - small group discussion about the weekly video content.
3. Workbook - journaling and personal study exercises that reinforce the weekly
The videos are designed to help you as you pass through the stages of mourning to joy. The following topics will be presented:
1. Is This Normal?
2. Challenges of Grief
3. The Journey of Grief - Part I
4. The Journey of Grief - Part II
5. Grief and Your Relationships
7. Guilt and Anger
8. Complicating Factors
10. Lessons of Grief - Part I
11. Lessons of Grief - Part II
13. What Do I Live For Now?
The care you need. The information you can trust. After the funeral, when the cards and flowers have stopped coming, most of the people around you return to their normal lives, but your grief continues, and you feel alone. Often friends and family want to help you but don’t know how. That’s the reason for GriefShare Grief Support Groups. Our group is led by caring people who have experienced grief and have successfully rebuilt their lives. We understand how you feel because we’ve been in the same place. We will walk with you on the long path through grief toward healing and hope for the future.
GriefShare is a network of 12,000+ churches worldwide equipped to offer grief support groups. The program is nondenominational and features biblical concepts for healing your grief. Learn more about GriefShare at www.griefshare.org.
