Most of us are unprepared to deal with loss, I know I was. This program prepared me to deal with my own unresolved grief and losses and enabled me to empower others to do the same.

“The Grief Recovery Method is an evidence-based and action-orientated program designed to help you complete the pain, isolation, and loneliness caused by loss of any kind. You will be supported to recover from loss of any kind with emotional guidance every step of the way (grief recovery method handbook).”

Helping Children With Loss Program (4-Week Program In-Person or Online)

Program Overview: The Helping Children with Loss program, using the book “When Children Grieve,” by John W. James, Russell Friedman, and Leslie Landon Matthews, is based upon the general principles of the Grief Recovery Method, which is an evidence-based program to help grievers achieve recovery from the grief they experience.

The HCWL program teaches adults how to help children and teens talk about their losses and to give voice to the feelings they experience. Adults learn how to help their children identify and give voice to undelivered communications they need to make to take the actions necessary to begin the recovery process. 

How does the HCWL program help teach recovery skills? The HCWL program is based on the Grief Recovery Method, which is just that – a method – a step by step process – an “action program” – for identifying and respecting the emotional experience of one’s grief – both the immediate or presenting grief issue – and those that may have been holding us captive for years. By learning, modeling, and teaching new, more effective, ways of responding to our grief, we can help the children in our lives learn these tools at a younger age – resulting in less cumulative grief over the years to come. The tools provided can be used throughout their lifetime, to address other losses, and to help more quickly address new losses.
