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. There are a number of ways in which you can learn the GRM for yourself or you can learn how to teach it to others by becoming a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist. We provide weekly educational groups throughout the community and have Certified Grief Recovery Specialists on staff to help when a loss occurs. Please be mindful that ‘loss’ includes all tangible and intangible (moving, finance, trust, faith) losses and is not only focused on death of a person or animal.
