Grief Recovery Specialist Dawn Ford reveals how the Grief Recovery Method transformed a young man who'd attempted suicide.
Dawn Ford shares the moving story of a young man who had attempted suicide following the death of his father, combined with other losses. He and his Mum are happy for her to share the story in the hope that others get the right help.
What is the Grief Recovery Method?
Because grief is such a misunderstood and little talked about topic it may be easier to start by saying what the Grief Recovery Method isn’t:
- It’s not counselling
- It’s not therapy
- It’s not an alternative treatment
While any of the above routes may be of some little or great benefit, they mainly offer a path to discovery of the thoughts and feelings you have around the loss in your life. However, here at Grief Recovery we maintain that discovery is not the same as recovery.
The Grief Recovery Method is an action plan. It is a series of small steps that when taken, in order, by the griever it leads to the completion of all the unresolved business linked to the loss.
The Grief Recovery Method is also - to the best of our knowledge - the only grief support programme with an evidence base to its positive impact. You can learn how to teach it to others by becoming a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist.
