Grief and Loss

Grief and Loss

10 million people are likely suffering from complicated grief in the United States. While loss is a natural part of life, it is not an easy time for individuals. Some people may experience what’s called “complicated grief” after a death, where they have lost someone who they had a strong and meaningful relationship with, making the loss even more difficult to handle. Experiencing grief and loss can cause individuals to experience feelings of sadness, guilt, or depression for prolong periods of time. During these times, individuals may feel like they are unable to cope and have difficultly being able to adjust in day to day life. This can begin to negatively impact one’s mental health, relationships, and ability to function in work and school settings.

Screening Questions

Are you unable to manage intense emotions?
Do you feel numb and disconnected since your loss?
Is your recent loss effecting your physical health, sleep or appetite?

Program

In order to work through the grief process and begin to deal with a loss, many individuals seek counseling. Through the use of mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, and interpersonal therapy, one can begin to address the memories and avoidance, working to find a “new normal”. One can expect to see improvement through re-establish relationships and establish life goals and values.
