Why Group sessions for grieving teens and young adults

Group sessions form a support structure where you are encouraged to openly express your inner feelings and share your personal experience of losing a parent

All members of the group have one thing in common and that is that they have also lost one or both parents so, this is a place where you can feel understood and in a safe space to express yourself in your own way.

This time of change brings with it many personal challenges that are better talked about with someone who truly understands the experience of losing a parent. Therefore, the opportunity to share your personal experience and feelings with like-minded others can serve as a healthy outlet for your emotions.

It is important to acknowledge that the grieving process is a very confusing time and therefore, talking about it, can help you to make sense of your emotions you are feeling

We all have strengths, inner resources, and qualities to bring to the group. Sharing your extraordinary life event in a group is both a healthy way to process your grief and a way to begin to work towards accepting the loss of your parent.

Chances are that your story will profoundly and positively impact the lives of those who have listened and heard your story just as you will be affected by their stories.
