What is ‘Bridging The Grief Gap’?
Having worked with both the bereaved and their support circle (family members, friends and the professionals dealing with the bereaved) for many years, it has become apparent that one of the biggest gaps there is to bridge is a better mutual understanding.
Bridging The Grief Gap is the latest book project by Nathalie Himmelrich, aimed at fostering and supporting this improved mutual understanding by
- encouraging the bereaved to voice their needs
- enabling the support circle in their understanding of those needs
Bridging The Grief Gap is like a guide book and dictionary in one that will help you navigate the land of grief and loss.nathalie himmelrich
For the Bereaved
From personal and professional experience it is obvious that the initial support greatly affects the bereaved in the grieving and healing, their resilience for future challenges and their overall dealing with their loss.
This book will allow the bereaved to feel understood, to be seen, to truly be supported!
Family members, Friends and Professionals
…long to truly support the bereaved. They are trying to do their best, sometimes lack information and skills to truly be there. They are also unsure and yearn to understand how to best support the bereaved. Those who are not willing to support (or it might simply exceed their personal capacity to do so) usually more or less obvious distance themselves.
This book will support the support circle members to gain access to ways to truly support and be present, a gift the bereaved will be eternally grateful for.
Please help us build a strong bridge!
