Grief Counseling Certification Article and Approaching the Bereaved

It is important to be there for family and friends when they lose someone.  What to say and what to do can sometimes be confusing though.  We want to help but may not know how.

Knowing what to say to the bereaved can be difficult for the untrained. Please also review our Grief Counseling Certification

The article, “6 thoughtful things to do when someone passes away” from Considerable Staff looks at how we can approach this difficult situation and help others.  The article states,

“Offers of support can be open-ended and vague, and often the last thing a grieving person wants to do is devote effort to an ambiguous offer of food or company.  Knowing the best way to lend a hand can be difficult, but it shouldn’t stop you from trying.”

Hopefully we can all be better friends and family to those suffering a loss.  To read the entire article, please click here
