Grief and loss come in many forms. Incomplete recovery from grief and loss can have a lifelong negative effect on our capacity for happiness. In the wake of a traumatic event, many people think it is impossible to recover from grief; or at least to recover completely. Many become accustomed to finding themselves in tears at odd moments throughout their days. Others believe that their loss has destroyed their happiness and sense of security, leaving them feeling as though they will be bitter and joyless forever. This is not the case.
At the New Directions Center, we partner with Betsy Ie to provide Grief Recovery workshops for individuals and groups. The Grief Recovery Method is not intended to replace counseling, but to supplement it. Contact Betsy to set up a consultation or visit our News & Events page for more information about individual and group Grief Recovery events in the future.
