Styles of Grieving : A Workshop
While the process of grieving is universal – we all grieve – grief looks different on everyone. Your relationship with the loss (losses) is unique and so too will be your experience of those losses. At the same time, it can be helpful to see yourself or others in their grief as having a particular style.
Conflict in families and relationships concerning grief often occurs because individuals have different needs in the expression of their grief. Some may want to be in action in their grief – you might find them planting a tree or building a memorial. For some, it may be about being quiet, on their own in nature.
Differences in the way family members grieve are not differences in love or how much someone/something mattered!
In this workshop, we’ll explore the continuum of grieving styles and tie this knowledge into enabling us to better identify our own needs in grief and better support each other.
