Can the Healing through Grieving Program be used for grieving a death other than the death of a spouse?
Yes. While there will be some information that targets loss of spouse the overall program design is to help anyone who is grieving a death move along a path towards healing.
Is the Healing through Grieving Program a substitute for counseling?
No. In cases of complicated grief (grief that involves the need to resolve other issues related to the nature of the death because it interferes with the grieving process i.e. murder, suicide, sudden death), it is important to seek help from professionals who have experience in dealing with complicated grief.
The Healing through Grieving Program is designed to inform those who are grieving a death about the grieving process and to help them grieve.
