What is GriefShare?

GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of lifeís most difficult experiences - the loss of a loved one. You donít have to go through the grieving process alone.

GriefShare seminars and support groups are led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. Youíll gain access to valuable GriefShare resources to help you recover from your loss and begin to look toward rebuilding your life.

How GriefShare Works:

It may be difficult 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 there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel.  This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you have never faced before.

GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.  Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements:

  1. Video Seminar with Experts: Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects.  These videos are produced in an interesting-to-watch television magazine format featuring interviews with experts, real-life case studies, reenactments and on-location filming.
  2. Support Group Discussion with Focus: After viewing the video, you and other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week's video session as well as what is going on in your lives.
  3. Workbook-based Personal Study and Reflection: During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling.  Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.  Workbooks are $15 and can be purchased at any time.
