Web Secret #246: Whats Your Grief

I just came across a blog about grief, and it's fantastic.

Seems impossible, but it is simultaneously interesting, innovative, and useful. I can see recommending it to clients, colleagues and using it myself.

See how clearly the two clinicians who started this blog describe its purpose:

Specifically, our mission is to promote grief education, exploration, and expression in both practical and creative ways. We aim to provide the public with…
  • Education that reaches beyond generalization
  • Practical and specific suggestions for moving forward
  • Modes of self-exploration and self-expression that suit all types of thinkers and doers
  • Ways to honor and remember deceased loved ones.
  • A supportive community
…and we may just throw in some personal reflection, experimentation, and a few laughs along the way.
Here is a taste of how they do it:

In a section called "How Tos," they have a post on "Practical Plan for Dealing with the Holidays after a Loss."

In a section called "Remembering Loved Ones," they have a post on "Keeping Memories Alive by Accident."

In a section called "Words, Writing, and Journaling," they have posted a book review of "The Disappearance: A Primer of Loss" by Genevieve Jurgensen The book was written nearly twelve years after her four and seven year old daughters were killed in a car accident in France.

This is a blog that demands exploration.

Job well done.
