Center for Grief Education

Your Subtitle text



Since 1991, GriefConnect has been helping caregiving professionals connect with people in grief. Through continuing education seminars, program design consultation, as well as both printed and electronic resource materials, you can count on us as your resource for bereavement.

So, why the compass? When a loved one dies, life can become pretty chaotic. Even if we've experienced grief before, since every relationship is unique, every bereavement is also unique. In the midst of the confusion and the "lost-ness" that ensues, what we most need is someone to help us "find the way." And that's an especially good task for a compass.
