The tools for healthy grieving turn out to be some of the best tools for healthy living. Dr. Powers will discuss her book Ruthless Grieving and her 10 guides to the grief process. She writes and speaks about the need to tap into the fiercest part of self to get through to the other side of loss.
In addition to being a healing process, grief can be an intervention on our codependency, a severe distortion of relationships which involves “people pleasing” and being overly focused on other people. “The social aspects of grieving could kill you,” says Dr. Powers.
We will also focus on the three levels of survivor guilt in grief and how pivotal that is in getting through grieving. Dr. Powers has developed many tools for getting through the stages of grieving and will be discussing and demonstrating them all. The special problems of grieving loved ones who die from addiction and/or suicide will also be discussed.
