GRIEF CONVERSATIONS - SUPPORT GROUPS
Updated: Oct 15, 2018
“Who can so softly bind up the wound of another, as he who has felt the same wound himself?” Thomas Jefferson
Pauleen lost her husband many years ago and still feels the need to talk about him, but friends and family are disinterested. One day she heard about a local grief support group. She decided to give it a go. There, she was able to talk openly and honestly about her loss in a safe, caring, and nurturing environment. She is now a regular attendee. Support groups provide the opportunity for people to release emotions and share their stories. Attendees find comfort from people who also know the pain of loss. It’s where people make new friends, get to ask questions, and learn new coping skills.
People begin to heal, when they are heard.
This is an excerpt from my book HEALING THE GRIEVING HEART by Del Marie McAlister
Imagine having someone walking beside you every day of the year, sharing nuggets of wisdom, messages of comfort, real life stories, and glimmers of hope. Many people, including myself have traveled a similar journey to yours and we understand what it’s like to grieve deeply. HEALING THE GRIEVING HEART contains snippets of our collective wisdom, and practical ideas that has the potential to become healing balm to your grieving heart. A must-have if you are bereaved.
"I loved the book! I heard your voice throughout and it was such a comfort. Very heart warming and affirming."
“I can thoroughly recommend this book. It would have to be the most practical book I have read on dealing with the loss of someone you love.”
