When Mourning Dawns Grief Support Group Guide
Learn how to use Willowgreen's popular DVD When Mourning Dawns: Living Your Way Fully Through the Seasons of Your Grief as a source of input for a grief support group. This comprehensive guide includes a rationale for grief support groups, suggestions about being a support group facilitator, and a complete set of basics for starting a grief support group. After a discussion regarding techniques for using an audiovisual resource with such a group, Jim Miller lays out almost fifty pages of information covering the 37 modules that make up When Mourning Dawns: The DVD. Information for each module includes its length on the DVD, a transcript of the words, and a series of questions that facilitators might use to encourage discussion. Each module is short (between one and three minutes) so the group leader might use one, two or three of these modules in any session. Also included is a writing entitled "Caring for Yourself as a Caregiver of the Bereaved," which originally appeared in a major edited book for professional caregivers. The addenda contains reproducible forms and handouts, including an annotated bibliography.
The guide includes a copy of the paperback When Mourning Dawns. The DVD is sold separately.
