Grief and Healing
Who ever said being human is easy? Certainly, life can bring both joy and sorrow; and no one remains a stranger to the complexities of grief and bereavement for very long. Naturally, we're all familiar with grief; it almost doesn't matter how young you are–dealing with loss can begin early. There are hidden losses in childhood: divorce, moving to a new community or school; even the loss of innocence. And then there's the childhood experience of death: either the death of a beloved family member, close friend, or pet. Then in adulthood, layer upon layer of losses can continue to wear us down, punctuated by the grief we know as bereavement, brought on by the loss of parents, siblings and friends. If you find yourself bearing the burden of grief or bereavement, check out the resources listed below. And if you have questions about anything you see here, please call us at (313) 982-1000. We pledge to do our best to support you in this difficult time.
When someone asks about grief, we describe it as a complex tangle of emotional, intellectual and physical reactions to loss. We also talk of the value of understanding grief; its qualities, effects, and its benefits. Our grief resources can help when dealing with grief.
Coping with Grief
Coping with grief takes its toll. Not only can it break our hearts, it can cause us to question our core beliefs and values. It can make us feel lost in our own lives. Read this if you're wondering how to cope with grief.
