Grief Support Groups

GRIEF RECOVERY OUTREACH TO WHOLENESS - G.R.O.W.

The Grief Recovery Outreach to Wholeness Group is a six week program held periodically throughout the year, with daytime and evening groups available. Grief groups provide a unique way to connect with others who are experiencing similar feelings. By nature grieving is done in solitude, but this can also be extremely lonely with the thought that, "no one really understands...". By attending a group a person can realize there are others with similar thoughts and feelings. "I am not alone." 

A different topic related to grieving is presented each week including: 

  1. Introduction to the Grief Process, Your Story... 
  2. Loneliness vs Being Alone...with Options
  3. Tears are Healing/Total Body Health Responses
  4. Anger, Guilt, Stress in the Grief Process
  5. Grief Management - Setting Realistic Expectations
  6. Coping With Reminders, The Holidays, Anniversaries & How Do I Know I am Getting Better?

Come back to the website for updates on the group time and location.

The groups are facilitated by the Bereavement Care Coordinator, Dana Naumann, MSW

ALL GROUPS ARE AVAILABLE TO THE COMMUNITY AT NO CHARGE. Call                   269-343-1508 or email at dana@langelands.com to register for a G.R.O.W. Group.
