Grief & Loss
Mary Ann Barlow, LPC
2885 N. Highland Avenue, Jackson, TN
I listen to all the ways a person is grieved, often more than one. I try to show empathy and feeling for their pain. I try to have them fully express all the events and feelings of their loss. I also encourage them to go to grief groups which can be at hospitals and churches and funeral homes. I give an excellent pamphlet “How Can I Live With My Loss?” to most grieving clients, I explain the stages of normal grief and give papers on handling grief and loss. If grief seems prolonged, I can use a grief workbook or loan other books on the subject.
