It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you have lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, you've probably found that there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel.
That's the reason for GriefShare, a special seminar and support group for people grieving the loss of someone close.
GriefShare is a 13-week workshop. Each session includes a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos also include real-life stories of people who have experienced losses like yours.
After viewing the video, you'll participate in a small group discussion about what you have seen on the tape. You will also have the opportunity to interact with others who have experienced a recent loss, learn about their experiences and have the opportunity to share your own. There is a workbook for daily reading and journaling to do on your own which helps you stay focused during the week between sessions.
