Grief / Loss

Grief is an overwhelming, painful experience that occurs with the loss of a loved one - whether through death, divorce, separation, disability, or other circumstances. Loss can also extend to more general areas - loss of an opportunity, a dream; familiarity of environment; a role or identity. Grief and loss are helped by similar processes and principles.
