Who are the 10,000 professionals who have benefited 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.
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.

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.

Military and Casualty Assistance Personnel
You are a service member whose job responsibilities place you in contact with the family of a deceased service member or injured veteran. In all likelihood, you’re not a trained therapist or counselor—you’re a service member, called to perform the toughest duty of your career. You’re part of the casualty assistance team, tasked with notifying and assisting the immediate family of a recently deceased service member. Casualty assistance is tough for both the family and the service member. It may be new territory for you. And 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
- Outreach provider
