DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY TO A GRIEVING FRIEND OR CLIENT?
It’s always been true that saying just ONE wrong thing to a grieving person can seriously damage your relationship with them. New insights from experts in the little known fields of palliative care, grief counseling, and the mental health profession show that some of the most common phrases spoken to grieving people are often inaccurate and sometimes even harmful, even when spoken out of the best intentions.
RECENT BREAKTHROUGHS IN GRIEF AND DIVORCE CARE
The good news is that saying the RIGHT thing to a grieving person is still so rare that saying it will cause them to bond with you almost immediately — and almost instantly reduce their immediate suffering at the same time. Even better, those same grief recovery experts have provided us with more truthful, compassionate and effective things to say than worn out clichés like “I’m sorry for your loss” and “Just give it time”.
