Floral Haven is proud to offer two 8-week Grief Recovery Support Group workshops each year. Our next group sessions begin Tuesday, March 27 from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the Floral Haven Family Center. Our fall group sessions begin Tuesday September 25 from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Grief is the normal and natural reaction to any significant emotional loss. While most people associate this with a death, other losses such as divorce, estrangement, retirement and health issues can also be sources of significant grief. Unfortunately, grief is one of society's most misunderstood and off-limits topics of conversation. Grievers often are left totally alone to deal with the conflicting emotions caused by a loss.
Sadly, we are taught very little on how to cope with grief. Most of our education is based on misinformation, such as "grief just takes time." This is only true if the time is properly spent learning and applying to tools of recovery. To fully recover from a loss, we must first discover what was incomplete in the relationship and what must be done to make things complete. Our grief support group focuses on teaching people these tools.
Our workshops programs are led by Doug Hash, a certified Grief Recovery Specialist, who has worked with these programs for many years. He is assisted in this program by a group of past graduates who have likewise gone on for certification through the Grief Recovery Institute and now volunteer their time to assist other grievers.
