Grief Outreach Programs Australia
Are you suffering from a broken heart? Was it caused by a
death, divorce, or the breakup of a romantic relationship? Or was it
caused by any of the forty other losses that a person can experience
during a lifetime? Regardless of the cause, you know how you feel and it
probably isn’t good.
In The Grief Recovery Method Outreach Program, we are not going to tell
you, “We know how you feel,” because we don’t. Neither does anyone else.
Your feelings are normal and natural. The problem is that we have been
socialized to believe that these feelings are abnormal and unnatural.
What is The Grief Recovery Method ® Outreach Program?
This powerful and dynamic experience is the most sensible,
accessible, and authentic plan available for recovery from loss. Each
program is facilitated by one of our Certified Grief Recovery
Specialists® in either the 8-week group format or the 7-week
one-on-one format. We have trained thousands of Specialists all over
the country as well as internationally.
The Grief Recovery Handbook – 20th Anniversary Expanded
Edition – is used as the text for this program. It is neither a support
group nor a drop-in program. It is an experiential, action-based
program with homework assignments.
The Outreach Program provides a safe environment for participants to
take the actions of The Grief Recovery Method. You will look at your
old beliefs about dealing with loss, what losses have affected your
life, and take new actions that will lead you to completion of the pain
attached to those losses. As a result, our participants find that they
are able to discover and complete what was left emotionally unfinished
due to a death, a divorce, or other major loss.
While grief is normal and natural, most of the information passed on
within our society about dealing with loss is not normal, natural, or
helpful. Grief is the emotional response to loss, but most of the
information we have learned about dealing with loss is intellectual.
Myths about grief
Time heals all wounds
Replace the loss
Don’t feel bad
Just looking at the myth that time heals
creates the idea that a person just has to wait and they will feel
better. We have known people who have waited ten, twenty, thirty, and
forty years, and still didn’t feel better. And they would tell you that
not only had time not healed them but it had compounded the pain.
When is it time to start Grief Recovery?
Is it ever too soon to recovery? No! Effective Grief Recovery can begin
immediately. We tend to create larger-than-life memory pictures in which
we either enshrine or bedevil the person who died. This phenomenon
increases with time, making it more difficult to discover the truth
within our relationships. It is never too soon to address your grief.
What is the difference between The Grief Recovery Method ® Outreach Program and support groups?
Many grief groups provide an environment for you to verbalize the
thoughts and feelings you experience following a loss. While there is a
benefit to that kind of expression, it is not enough. Talking about how
you feel does not complete the unfinished emotional business that is
attached to a loss. The Grief Recovery Method Outreach Program is
designed to guide you through a series of actions to not only verbalize
your feelings, but to help you complete the pain associated with those
feelings. For the safety and success of all participants, commitment and
attendance are essential.
People say you have to let go and move on in your life, but they don’t
tell you what you need to do to accomplish that. The Grief Recovery
Method Outreach Program, developed and refined over the past 30 years,
not only makes that possible, but provides partnerships and guidance to
ensure that it happens.
Don’t wait any longer. Time alone will not heal your broken heart.
