Our Grief Recovery Programs near Kansas City, MO

Here is the most current information on grief recovery programs near Kansas City, MO. Find dates, times, and locations for support groups in your area. Grief Recovery Groups may be joined by anyone in the first two weeks; then it becomes a closed group.

Note: The first week of each group is entitled “Beginning the Journey: An Introduction to Grief Basics”. The purpose of this group is to help you begin the journey of understanding your grief. We will discuss the normal and natural responses to loss of any kind and look at what helps and what does not help. At the end of the first session, you will have the opportunity to decide if you want to go deeper and continue through the Grief Recovery Method program. There is no charge for the first session or the multi-week class; however, group members are expected to participate by reading the book and completing the associated exercises to get the full benefit of the program. The facilitator will be available to gently guide you throughout the course towards recovery and hope.

Grief and the Holidays

Not looking forward to the holidays? The “happy” holidays are just around the corner.

With the right tools, we can reduce our stress and assist ourselves through the season. We want to invite you to this special workshop and join with others who are also experiencing similar things.

Supporting a Friend During Hardship or Loss

Our society is overloaded with information on every topic imaginable; however, the information is not always correct. Many grow up without guidance on how to respond to hardships personally, or how to support another. All of us have heard, and maybe said, things that have not been helpful to someone in distress, because that’s what we learned from others. Sometimes we don’t say anything at all because we’re not sure what to say. This workshop will discuss ideas for providing compassionate support both to ourselves, and to anyone experiencing hardship or loss.
