Navigating grief and trauma with practical tools and resources
Why consider group support?
Becoming involved in a grief or trauma support group can provide an invaluable network of other community members who have experienced similar life-changing events. In a supportive group environment with others who are traveling the same path, all feelings can be shared and released. Once feelings and experiences are acknowledged and validated by others, positive change can begin to occur. Support groups are offered worldwide for just about every life experience, transition, and challenge.
How does group support promote healing?
By providing permission to grieve openly and freely in a safe, structured environment
By allowing the opportunity to receive emotional, social, and spiritual support
By using the group process to facilitate positive changes in behavior
By offering support and camaraderie throughout the personal growth and healing journey
Bi·o·feed·back [bahy-oh-feed-bak] noun
1. Biofeedback is a mind-body technique that teaches how to bring the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) under conscious control. The ANS manages many bodily functions that we generally do not think about (heart rate, blood pressure, muscle tension, breathing). During a Biofeedback session, the therapist attaches electrical sensors to various parts of the body to track heart rate and breathing, while a computer gives feedback on the ANS. Biofeedback sessions are non-invasive and covered by some health insurance providers.
