ACS Grief Support

Grief Support brings people together who have lost someone they deeply care about (parent, spouse, child, sibling, friend). While all losses are unique, people who grieve share many similarities.  Group members encourage one another from along their journey of grief.

It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a loved one, you probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel.

This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. Grief Support groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each Grief Support session has three distinct elements:

Video Seminar With Experts
Each week your Grief Support group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments, and on-location video.

Support Group Discussion With Focus
After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in your lives.

Personal Study and Reflection
During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling. Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.
