Coping With Grief and Loss:
Grief is a natural response to loss. It’s the emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away. Often the pain of loss will be overwhelming. One may experience all kinds of difficult and unexpected emotions, from shock or anger to disbelief, guilt and profound sadness. Grief could be because of Death, Loss of something which was very close to us, insecurities, fear, anxiety, extreme stress, uncertainty. There is no right or wrong way to grieve, but there are healthy ways to deal with the grieving process. One in grief can go through physical and/or emotional distress. It is often seen that we have the best intent to help the person in grief but do not know actually how to do so and may end up hurting the person. In Coping with Grief and loss we discuss all these distresses one may be feeling when in grief, stages of grief one goes through. What are the symptoms from normal to extreme? How is it impacting this on his personal, social life? And how one can give support during such times. It becomes absolutely necessary to take care of your own self, emotional health and physical health. Dr. Chinu Agrawal, trained of DBT and ACT, promoter of Third Wave Psychotherapy for the welfare and well being of people, elaborates on helping, supporting a person in grief in healthy ways. During the Pandemic Covid 19, we have seen a rise in the grief cases and people are not knowing how to deal in such situations. Feeling minds have taken a step forward in these unprecedented times to help people how to be supportive. Feeling Mind’s team of Expert Counselors are helping people to deal with these grieving situations.
Feeling Minds® partners with HEMA Foundation to bring in Values to our lives though HEM Virtues Platform.
Values are the very foundation of our human behaviour. It is integral part of our nature. From last couple of decades there has been a lot research going on the “values” and most of the modern psychotherapies especially the Third Wave psychotherapy have included Values as a foundation of psychotherapy, because it is the values that guide us what we think, what feel and what action we take.
At every step of life whenever we have to choose, we are guided by inner compass, which tells us what is right or what is wrong. In today’s world, it is crucial to make a conscious effort to model these values to our coming generations. So, how do we acquire these values and what do we do with that? Can values be changed over lifetime? What are the things that motivate us to live a value-based life? Is it easy to do so ? What is the research saying about this?
