Grief is an experience - not a mental disorder. Join the movement and learn how you can get a better understanding of grief!
We've partnered with The Dougy Center, and dozens of other organizations like us, in the movement to Understand Grief. This campaign is a message of understanding and hope intended to help people who are grieving, and those supporting them. Our goal is to raise awareness of what grief truly is - a natural, normal, and health response to loss.
This position paper, written by Donna L. Schuurman, EdD, FT and Monique B. Mitchell, PhD, FT, discusses and challenges what grief means in "mainstream" American society; medicalizing and pathologizing grief; lack of grief education/training; and core principles of grief-informed practice.
Quick summary of the full position paper and tip sheet with 10 Core Principles and Action Steps.
