Grief and Gratefulness - online practice

Grief and Gratefulness - online practice | Healing Trauma and Loss | Scoop.it

If joy is gold, grief is silver. But we tend to be as unaware of the value of our “blues” as the 19th-century prospectors were about the value of blue sand. When we’re struck by grief, is the main point to “beat” this mood that seems to be clogging the works so that we can get back to a happy, productive life? Maybe sometimes. But always we can find a profound source of gratefulness right within grief itself.

Coping Skills

Coping Skills | Healing Trauma and Loss | Scoop.it

This page lists positive coping skills for difficult times.

Essentially taking an active role in your healing ('approach coping') is better than taking a passive role or avoiding the problem. Approach/tackle coping means learning about your condition (be it PTSD or other), learning coping skills and seeking social support. Things not to do are going into denial, self blame and partying too hard. Those are called avoidance coping and they keep you from healing more quickly. (Bloks et al., 2004)

Other helpful things that researchers recommend are activities such as moderate exercise, information seeking and relaxation. (Broder, 1996)
