Greif And Loss Therapy
Losing someone or something you love is very painful — and it’s something that almost everyone will experience at some point in their lives. Loss that goes unacknowledged or unattended can result in disability. But grief that is expressed and experienced has a potential for healing that eventually can strengthen and enrich life. There is no right or wrong way to grieve — but there are ways to make your grieving more complete and more positive.
Kübler-Ross proposed these stages of grief:
- Denial: “This can’t be happening to me.”
- Anger: “Why is this happening? Who is to blame?”
- Bargaining: “Make this not happen, and in return I will ____.”
- Depression: “I’m too sad to do anything.”
- Acceptance: “I’m at peace with what is going to happen/has happened.”
NOT EVERYOONE RESPONDS TO GRIEF THE SAME WAY, GRIEF IS UNIQUE TO EACH INDIVIDUAL DEPENDENT UPON PAST EXPERIENCES OF LOSS AS WELL AS CULTURAL BACKGROUND AND BELIEFS.
THERAPY CAN HELP EVALAUTE AND PROCESS
- YOUR RELATIONSHIOP TO THAT PERSON, EXPERIENCE OR IDEA
- HOW THE LOSS OCCURRED
- YOUR COPING SKILLS AND BELIEFS ABOUT THE LOSS
- LIFE EXPERIENCES AROUND THE SUBJECT OF LOSS
TO LOSE SOMETHING OR SOMEONE IS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT AND LEARNING TO COPE AND UTILIZING SUPPORT IS OFTEN NECESSARY.
