And Now My Life Has Changed Im Not So
Self-Assured
  • When someone dies, people grieve the loss and the
    changes in their life.
  • People hurt physically, emotionally and
    spiritually .
  • They need time to heal and someone to talk to.
  • Their lives have now forever changed.

4
And I Do Appreciate You Being Round
  • At Hospice we provide an 8-week peer support
    grief group with trained experienced
    facilitators.
  • The purpose of the grief group is to help family
    members understand what is happening, to
    normalize their feelings as well as give them
    strength/skills to live life differently
  • As well the support and sharing of others who are
    also experiencing loss is very helpful in coping
    with their loss.
  • They realize they are not alone on this journey.

5
Help Me Get My Feet Back On The Ground
  • How do our trained facilitators at Hospice run a
    peer support Grief Group ?
  • With lots of understanding listening.
  • Respect for one another.
  • Not giving advice.
  • Allowing the participants to just be.
  • Providing the participants with helpful
    information that will aid them on their journey
    through grief.
  • By providing a safe place and safe space to share
    and learn from others.

6
How Does Grief Support Help
  • Both sides of the brain play a role in processing
    the death of a loved one.
  • The left brain focuses on the what of an
    emotional message. The right brain focuses on the
    how it feels. The left side of the brain heals
    more quickly with information that enhances
    understanding of what is happening. The right
    side of the brain retains the emotions of grief
    much longer and requires creative therapies to
    release emotion and facilitate healing.

7
  • This support group is designed to support healing
    in both sides of the brain and provides both
    information and education to help people
    understand What is happening and activities
    that help them deal with their emotions.

The Role of Support Groups
  • Peer support groups are an effective way to help
    people heal bring back their zest for life.
  • It is a safe non-judgemental place to do the
    work of healing.
  • We allow participants to explore their thoughts
    feelings in a way that helps them be
    compassionate with themselves.

10
  • We offer encouragement to support continued
    meaning in life and living.
  • Support groups encourage members to support and
    understand other bereaved people.
  • It helps them trust again in what, for many
    dealing with grief feels like their in an unsafe
    and uncaring world.

11
LEADERSHIP ROLES
  • As a group leader, your role is to facilitate,
    literally to make easier, purposeful discussion
    about the grief journey of participants.
  • Sensitive, skilled leadership is of vital
    importance to fulfilling the goal of the group.
  • Tasks of a grief support leader are
  • Planning leading meetings
  • Listening with openness a caring spirit
  • Understanding facilitating group process
  • Learning about effective group leadership
  • Evaluating the group process

12
Suggestions for Facilitating a Successful Grief
Support Group
  • Plan Each Session
  • Have a Routine
  • Be Sensitive to Difference Among Members
  • Define Your Leadership Style
  • Keep In Mind That Every Group Has Its Own Unique
    Requirements
  • A Good Leader Is Never Rigid

13
Now Ive Changed My Mind And Opened Up the Doors
  • Through the eight week sessions this group has
    started to open the door and move toward trust,
    reaching out to one another and in most cases
    growth.
  • Reflecting on and affirming the growth that they
    have experienced in this group is of vital
    importance.
  • Saying goodbye to each other as a group and
    supporting hopes for continued healing of wounds
    should be focused on as you bring your support
    group to an end.

14
What Best Describes a Grief Support Volunteer?
  • Someone who takes the time to listen.
  • Someone who is compassionate and understanding.

  • Lets the person grieving do the talking or be
    willing to accept their silence remember its
    about their loss and not about you and your
    stories.
  • Acknowledge and appreciate their grief.
  • Respect the confidentially of all members of the
    group.
  • Have a willing and giving heart.

15
How To Start A Peer-Support Group
  • All grief support volunteers must attend the
    30-hour General Hospice Training Program followed
    by additional grief support training.

    support programs as directed by the Hospice Grief
    Coordinator.

    self-learning, books, videos and material from
    the Hospice library and/or attending any local
    conferences or educational sessions.

    training sessions offered by Hospice.

    de-briefing meetings.

    participants.

    to families to the Hospice Grief Coordinator.

    the loss will remain with them long after they
    walk out that door.
