Grieving alone is never easy. The recent social distancing orders cut many of us from the usual support networks. As most organizations serving the needs of the bereaved individuals closed their doors to in person services, grieving while sheltering in place could feel even more isolating.
The virtual therapy group for grief support offered by the Juniper Center aims at restoring the network of compassionate allies for those already made vulnerable by their loss. Our grief group is for persons who have experienced the loss in the past 18 months and are unable to process through it with the family or friends.
Therapist Group Leaders: Kate Wilamska, LCSW, CT and Elizabeth Berland, LPC, ABA Trained
Meets Tuesdays and Fridays, 1 to 2 pm
Going through grief during these already uncertain times adds another layer of emotion. You can’t ignore the loss and grief. You need to process it and have the support of others experiencing the same thing. Join us for the comfort of connection with others who have lost someone important to them.
As the leading experts in the field of thanatology suggest we will focus on three aspects of our grief learning along the way the answers to these 3 key questions: what is lost, what is left and what is still possible for us in the future.
Group therapy offers participants the opportunity to interact with others with similar issues in a safe, supportive environment, led by a trained and licensed therapist.
Especially as people are sheltering-at-home, virtual groups can counter feelings of isolation while connecting and sharing experiences together.
Groups starting immediately and will run for six sessions (or longer) Fees are $25 per person, per session. A link and instructions to join will be sent after intake.
This group requires a minimum of 4 people to run, and can accommodate up to 8 people.
