Do You Need Grief Counseling?
The funeral is behind you. Friends and family are getting back to their lives. But you can't stop thinking about your life and and how it has changed forever. You’re exhausted. The emptiness in your stomach drains you of all energy. The sadness is overwhelming.
At some point it is necessary to address and manage your grief, and you can only do this by understanding all of the emotions that comprise grief. Further, you need to understand that experiencing grief is a process, not a state of mind that you'll eventually "get through." Finally, you need to understand how grief affects the mind, body and spirit and the four tasks of mourning.
Because grief is universal and because we all connect on the level of our pain and suffering, it is very important to connect with others who have lost a spouse. We do not offer "mixed grief" sessions; you'll only be with others who have lost a spouse. We offer 4-week group classes for both widows and widowers in a safe, caring and confidential environment, led by Jenny Schroedel, an experienced grief counselor. There is no fee to attend, of course, but we do ask that you attend all four classes. We purposely keep our group sizes small (8-10), so register early!
Register below for our next group session beginning February 2, 2020 at 3600 Minnesota Drive, Suite 80, Edina (Centennial Lakes Office Park. (Please note: Click on the time (2:30 - 4:00) to the right of the calendar to activate the registration form. Thank you.)
