Sandy Hook: Finding Gratitude, Even in Grief


I will let my thoughts turn to friends, neighbors and all of those who are hurting and impacted by grave loss. I will consider the strength and trust that so many of them have shown.

American Institute Health Care Professionals‘s insight:

This article is sad and a sign of grief recovery.  The families of SandyHook no doubt suffered greatly on Thanksgiving, but many were also able to find happiness and love of the support and new friends they have found since the shooting.

Being able to find gratitude and some sort of happiness is critical in grief recovery.  Of course, every Thanksgiving or Holiday will bring tears, but being able to live in the present is key to avoiding pathological and self destructive grief

Grief counselors should always look for healthy healing in their patients.  Signs of gratitude and happiness admist pain, is a good sign, their patients are healing.

If you are interested in learning more about grief counseling or would like to learn how to become a grief counselor, then please review our site.  Qualified professionals who take the four core courses in grief can become a  certified grief counselor.

The certification in Grief Counseling lasts three years and is renewable.  During the three years the grief counselor must practice five hundred hours and earn fifty hours of education credit in the field of grief.
