There are many common misconceptions about the length of time a grieving person will need the support of their community. When the relationships in our lives cause strain or hardship, our ability to manage the ups and downs of missing our person are compromised no matter how long we’ve been grieving. Even if you are surrounded by supportive people, they may not be offering the type of support that would be most valuable to you. Join Michele and Carrie to explore your personal universe. Together we use research-based tools to identify major sources of community support, discover ways to maintain healthy boundaries in challenging relationships and recognize gaps in our support system so that we can surround ourselves with the relationships we need for healing.
