Help with grief coming to Castor

Grieving can be lonely, but there is help

Submitted by Mandy Fuller BSW RSW director, Castor & District FCSS

Sometimes the holiday season is not a happy time for everyone. Those struggling with grief may want to learn more about an upcoming program in Castor.

A course based on the “Grief Recovery Method” will offer an eight week program beginning January 2. Mandy Fuller is also willing to hold one on one support as well.

The grief support program is free because it is being offered through this FCSS office but there is a companion book to buy which costs $25.

Some details of the program

Myths about grief: Time heals all wounds; replace the loss; grieve alone; be strong for others; bury your feelings.

Your feelings are normal and natural. The problem is that we have been socialized to believe that these feelings are abnormal and unnatural.

Whether your loss is from: Death, divorce or end of a relationship, loss of a career, loss of trust, loss of faith, loss of safety or loss of health.

People say you have to let go and move on in your life, but they don’t tell you what you need to do to accomplish that. The Grief Recovery Method® Outreach Program not only makes that possible, but provides partnerships and guidance to ensure that it happens.

For further information call Mandy Fuller, Castor District FCSS, certified grief recovery specialist (403-882-2115).

The program will be held at the Paintearth Lodge beginning Jan. 2, and each session runs 10:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.
