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.

Grief Recovery Method Outreach Program

One of the least addressed concerns in our society is grief, the normal and natural reaction to loss.  The Grief Recovery Method Outreach Program, based on the Grief Recovery Handbook, will guide those who wish to resolve their loss issues and move beyond their grief to a richer quality of life.

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 & The Holidays

Not looking forward to the holidays?
The “happy” holidays are just around the corner. However, if you’ve lost a loved one this year, you may be dreading these special days. 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 grief and loss. Hopefully, you’ll leave with a tool kit of ideas to help you navigate the season.

St. Joseph Grief Support Drop-In Group

One of the least addressed concerns in our society is "Grief," the normal and natural reaction to loss.  Each griever has a story to tell and a narrative that needs to be told and heard.  The story is more than "just the facts."  The story is about how we interpret the facts and how we live with those facts. 

Please join us for sharing and discussion.
