Who Has Benefited

Who are the 10,000 professionals who have benefited from Grief Solutions?

Like you, they are business, clergy, health care professionals, military personnel, firefighters and police who encounter grief reactions in those they work with or serve.

Business professionals

You offer a service or product to the general public. In your area of expertise, you may provide critical or essential assistance to individuals and families that can affect their present and future well-being. From time to time, your professional path crosses with men and women who have recently lost someone close.

Many people in all occupations are uncomfortable with displayed grief. And if you’re like most people, you’re not sure of what to say or how to act. It’s sometimes easier to ignore it all and get to the task at hand. But grief in those you’re working with can be an impediment to getting the job done.

You are the:

  • Banking and finance professional
  • Life insurance agent
  • Real estate or mortgage professional
  • Attorney

A powerful, yet practical presentation. I appreciate the style in which she delivered her professional experience without artificially evoking emotions.”
Financial Planner, Virginia

Health care professionals and clergy

You provide care and assistance to people in need. As part of your profession, you come across losses of all kinds in the young and old. As a result, you know firsthand that losses differ in predictability or impact. Each burdens its survivors with challenges.

Working in this area is an emotionally charged experience for both grief-laden men and women and those who assist them. As a care provider, you want to help and be a comfort to those in need— when it matters most.

You are the:

  • Nurse, medical doctor, dentist or staff member
  • Behavioral health professional
  • Clergy or lay minister
  • Nursing home or assisted living staff
  • Hospice worker
  • Home health care provider

My team really appreciated her words of wisdom on a seldom discussed topic.”
Dental care provider, Pennsylvania

Military and casualty assistance personnel

You serve in the U.S. Armed Forces. As a military member in a post 9/11 America, you understand all too well that military service is a dangerous profession—in peacetime or war. If a line-of-duty death does occur in your organization, your duties may place you in contact with the family of a newly deceased service member. You want to get it right—for your deceased brother-in-arms, his or her family and the uniform you wear.

You are the:

  • Commissioned or non-commissioned leader
  • Casualty assistance personnel
  • Chaplain
  • Outreach provider

Excellent presentation, relevant and well prepared. One of the finest presentations that pertains to our real world issues.”
Casualty and Mortuary Affairs Operations Center, US Army

First responders

You are likely to be the first on scene of an emergency, providing critical assistance and professional expertise. In your profession, you contend with a broad range of emergency situations, some of which result in traumatic loss of life and limb. Some things you can’t “unsee,” no matter how resilient you are afterwards. Another part of your responsibilities may be to officially deliver life-changing bad news to surviving family members.

You are the:

  • Police officer
  • Firefighter
  • Paramedic
  • EMT
  • Chaplain

I really enjoyed the give and take of the presentation. The audience interactions made the information much more applicable.”
