View and Print Grief Groups Spring 2016 Schedule
Banner Hospice offers a 3-month educational program that guides participants in the return to a full life. Participants in the Grief Recovery Program follow a step-by-step approach as a way of healing from loss.
The program addresses death and divorce as well as other significant emotional losses. During each three-month module, participants learn tools enabling them to regain a sense of meaning, value and joy even though life is different after the loss.
There are open sessions at the beginning of the program where new members are welcome to join. Then it becomes a closed group for the remainder of the module. These programs meet weekly for two hours. Participants follow a step-by-step approach by using a textbook and a structured format.
All meetings are led by specialists trained by the Grief Recovery Institute and are offered throughout the Phoenix metropolitan area.
These grief support groups and classes are open to the public. We welcome you to contact our bereavement coordinator to answer any questions you have about the posted class schedule. For more information, please call (480) 657-1167.
