DEALING WITH GRIEF
What is Grief?
Grief is our reaction to loss. Someone who has experienced a loss can feel like being lost in a maze of conflicting emotions. This is normal following significant loss. Some examples of significant losses are the death of a loved one, divorce/separation or relationship breakdown, death of a pet, loss of job, home, identity or independence, caring for someone with a chronic or a life threatening illness.
