Remembrance Group

November 7, 2018 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Behavioral Health at Outpatient (BHOP) is offering its third six-week session of a facilitated “Remembrance” Group.

Traditional grief counseling has encouraged people to seek ”closure” or “com- plete unfinished business” with their deceased loved ones. In a “remembrance” group, the focus is on learning how to restore and build meaning, purpose and ongoing relationships with our deceased loved ones. This relational approach tends to foster resilience, love and connection between the living and the deceased through story.

We have been inspired by our work with Squaxin Island community mem- bers to discover the cultural strengths and insights that emerge as people share their stories with each other and learn new ways to draw strength and courage from their relationships, past and present.

This six-week “remembrance” group is designed to help those who have lost loved ones navigate through the emotional pain and confusion that naturally hap- pens after the loss of a loved one.

Please contact us at (360) 426-1582 if you are interested in attending this group. It will be held at the Squaxin Museum classroom on Wednesday afternoons.
