What is the Grief Recovery Method® (GRM)?
The Grief Recovery Method® provides a safe environment for participants and looks at your beliefs about dealing with loss and how it affected your life. The GRM teaches new beliefs that will lead you to reach closure after your loss.
As a result, our participants find they are able to discover and complete what was left emotionally unfinished, due to a death, a divorce, or other major loss. The GRM is a one-on-one, 7-week session with the Grief Recovery Specialist®. There is also a six-week session with parents or guardians of grieving children, which gives parents tools to meaningfully assist their children to move past the initial trauma associated with their loss. Finally, there’s a six-week session specific to persons who have lost pets.
