New Grief Recovery Group Forming in Punta Gorda, FL
Punta Gorda, Florida – (News4us.com) April 25, 2013
Unresolved grief is something that people commonly carry around.
It is the source of a lot of woe for people; even though people do not typically recognize they are burdened with it.
It may result from a single major life trauma but unresolved grief also stems from a series of small incidences of loss.
These types of losses arise when people make normal life changes.
These small and seemingly inconsequential losses eventually add up and then they can be experienced as seemingly random or generalized anxiety or depression.
Consider how many people are troubled by these conditions in our country today.
As a society, we inadvertently exacerbate the grieving person’s inability to resolve the loss; e.g. we “comfort” the griever with platitudes.
Unfortunately, even the most well-intended supporters do not realize the damage that most platitudes can do in blocking the resolution of grief and loss.
What can a person do to resolve grief and loss?
Grief and loss support groups that have therapeutic leadership are the way to go.
Most support groups simply provide opportunities for members to vent their feelings.
It is very important for grief groups to have leaders who can guide the group members to a productive resolution of grief.
Venting in groups may give short term relief but it is through therapeutic guidance that long term relief is achieved.
The good news for people living in southwest Florida is that new therapeutic grief and loss resolution groups are forming.
These groups are a part of our Cope Strong Workshops and Group Therapy program being held at 252 W. Marion Avenue, Suite 1152 Punta Gorda, FL.
