The Grief Recovery Method® Program 
Moving Beyond Death, Divorce, and Other Loss
Loss is a universal and inevitable experience in our lives that can produce grief. Grief is a normal and natural reaction to significant emotional loss of any kind: death, divorce, moving, career change/retirement, financial loss, loss of physical health/functioning, loss of safety, etc. In our society, grief is often misunderstood and mishandled. Learn to distinguish between the myths and the healthy truth. Learn how to work toward recovery in a safe and supportive environment. This 8 week class will provide necessary tools; partnership and guidance to help people take the correct action choices that will help them move beyond the pain caused by loss and to help loved ones who may also be grieving.

This is an 8 week program offered through the Adult Community Program at ICC. The next session begins on September 30. To learn more or register go to:
