Grief Recovery Method®

People say you have to let go and move on with your life, but they don’t tell you what you need to do to accomplish that. The Grief Recovery Method® program not only makes that possible, but provides partnerships and guidance to ensure that it happens.

The program uses The Grief Recovery Handbook as a guide and introduces you to new tools to help you walk toward recovery. Throughout the 8 week program, we discuss the different types of losses we all experience, the range of emotions associated with grief, and the myths that do little but harm and so many other helpful topics.

  • The Grief Recovery Method® program is not an occasional, drop-in group.
  • It is a series of 8 weekly 2-hour sessions and is an action-based educational program requiring your commitment to attend each session and willingness to fully participate including homework assignments.GRM-horiz-color-large
  • The Workshop is led by David Defoe, a certified Grief Recovery Specialist® who has been trained and certified by The Grief Recovery Institute.
