Grief tasks

November 7, 2012

Braam Klopper spoke at the Remembrance event, and spoke about grief tasks. He believes that talking about the usual stages of grief, or milestones, is often unhelpful. Referring to them as tasks, on the other hand, is more active – tasks are things you can do to move forward, and so thinking of them this way helps to prevent you from getting stuck in your grief.

  1. Accept the reality.
  2. Express your emotions.
  3. Commemorate your child.
  4. Accept that conflicting emotions are normal.
  5. Decide where to spend your energy.

I’ll look at each separately, so keep an eye on the blog for updates.
