WHO DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION SERVE?
The Center for Loss is dedicated to "companioning" grieving people as they mourn transitions and losses that transform their lives. We help both mourners, by walking with them in their unique life journeys, and both professional caregivers and lay people, by serving as an educational resource and professional forum.
If you are grieving, want to support someone who is, or work with mourners in your role as bereavement caregiver, you’ve come to the right place.
WHAT IS THEIR BIGGEST CHALLENGE?
Someone you have given love to and received love from has died. You are in mourning. You are bereft. To be “bereaved” literally means to be torn apart. You are on a journey that is often frightening, painful, and lonely. No words, written or spoken, can take away the pain you now feel.
You don't need to be "treated", you need companionship, support, comfort and encouragement.
HOW DO YOU HELP THEM?
We hope, though, that the resources on this website will help bring you comfort and encouragement as you make a commitment to help yourself heal. On our website you'll find the following resources:
- Information on what grief is
- How to help someone who is grieving
- How to find a grief counselor
- When our latest seminars take place
- What training is needed to become a bereavement caregiver
- How to receive a death and grief studies certification
- A list of books available for purchase
- A library of articles and book excerpts about grief for bereaved families and bereavement caregivers
