Grief - A Better Understanding

Grief

The normal, natural and necessary inner experience of loss. The space God gives us to feel feelings of loss and separation.

Mourning

The external expression of grief — grief gone public

Trauma

An abnormal event causing profound feelings of fear, anger, and devastation.

NPTS (Normal Post-Traumatic Stress)

A collection of experiences, (e.g. nightmares, flashbacks, etc.) which normally can follow the event of trauma.

Thanatology

The study of death and dying.

Companioning

The role of support people walking alongside the bereaved.

Reconciliation

The process of learning to live with our losses.

Grief Journey

Grief is a process, not an event. Your grief will likely take longer than you expect and more energy than you can imagine.

 

It is best to contact your parish to find out if they offer a bereavement group or contact our offices if you have any questions at all.
