Mustering the Courage to Grieve
Loss brings uninvited pain into our lives. In opening to the presence of the pain of your loss, in acknowledging the inevitability of the pain, in being willing to gently embrace the pain, you demonstrate the courage to honor the pain
Children Understanding Loss & Grief
Growing up is an ongoing process of change for children that involves times of loss as well as times of gain. Children grieve from an early age, but not in the same way as adults. They often grieve in bursts and can show their feelings in their behaviour and play.
Life does not always go to plan. Stressful situations arise and some people may find it helpful to share their experiences with others.
In many community service and other workplace environments clients may feel that they want to talk about difficulties they are going through. Having conversations such as these can be difficult both for the client and for the staff member.
