The Grief Recovery Method. 8 week grief recovery classWednesday, February 08, 2017 : 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
When we lose a loved one, we know that we will never be quite the same again. Our loss will always be with us, however we can heal. The Grief Recovery Method provides a tool for that healing. Unresolved grief is cumulative and cumulatively negative, and time alone can't heal emotional wounds. The Grief Recovery Method class can enable you to resolve the losses that have affected your life and create resilience for the future. This group requires and eight week commitment. Held on Wednesdays from 6:00pm-8:00pm, beginning February 8 at the Hambly Brick House, 30 Red Cross Ave, Newport.
