A Sojourner in Grief Surpasses Basic Grief Counseling

 

Sorjourning is beyond basic grief counseling but is sharing one's inner light beyond mere words.  Please review grief counseling program

Sorjourning is beyond basic grief counseling but is sharing one’s inner light beyond mere words. Please review grief counseling program

 Sourjourning in One’s Grief is a Deeper Calling Than Just Grief Counseling

A Sojourner is one who has the empathy and compassion to commit the time and energy to travel into the darkness of grief with another one. As a counselor, it is not always about making the person feel better but helping them face grief and overcome it. What is wanted is healing and emotional health that lasts more than a few minutes.

Some things to consider when dealing with traumatic grief and counseling.

1. Sometimes people need to hear tragic news more than once to help it fit in and for them to say it themselves.

2. Sometimes they may need a physical hug. Remember physical touch can be reassuring but should be respectful and appropriate and only if accepted.

3. Encourage them to talk out their problems with family and friends

4. Include anger management. Allow them to be angry but channel it properly

5. Plan follow up sessesions to rethink and retalk about what has happened.

Sojourning and mentorship is beyond mere counseling. It is a personal interest with one’s spiritual child. It involves listening and helping one through the darkness of grief. It involves also sometimes stepping into the darkness to help one escape it.  If you are interest in the  Grief Counseling Program, please click here.
