GRIEF&LOSS

IN D I V I D UAL & GROUP COUNSELING

Grief is a natural, though often deeply painful, response to loss. The death of a loved one is the most common way we think of loss, but many other significant changes in one's life including the loss of a job, divorce and even the loss of a role in life, such as being a father can create a significant amount of distress within us

THE BRIGHTEST

SKIES ARE ALWAYS FORESHADOWED

BY DARK CLOUDS ~HARRIET JACOBS

While there is no right or wrong way to

grieve, there are healthy ways to cope with the

pain that, in time, can renew you and permit

you to move on. Uncomplicated grief

generally resolves itself slowly over time and though the loss is never fully forgotten,

eventually the grieving person is able to think fondly of the lost person, situation or role

without significant pain or disturbance. Complicated grief occurs when an additional mental health issue such as depression or

anxiety develops in the setting of grief. In this setting, the normal slow healing process does not occur and instead symptoms of grief can

worsen over time. It soon becomes obvious

that a person with complicated grief is not

"moving on" nor healing. In this setting it is imperative to address the associated mental

health issues so that the natural healing

process of grief can occur.
