Coping With Grief From Home: 10-Day Challenge

Online Course

No one can tell you the "right" way to cope with grief because there isn't one. Each individual's path to "okay-ness" is a reflection of unique factors, like life experiences, support system, strengths, preferences, environment, personality, and access to resources.
Thinking about your coping style, and trying different things, is essential in discovering what's helpful to you. This course will provide you with activities to help you try out various coping tools. Some activities are creative, while others are more practical - but all are accessible and easy to do from the comfort of your own home. This is not a replacement for support from friends, family, or a grief professional. Rather, this offers you some things you can do to supplement those types of support. You can take it at your own pace, in whatever time and way works for you.
Though this course is brief - 10 activities in 10 days - we will provide you will next-steps related to each exercise, whether it's information about courses or suggested articles and resource recommendations. We recommend this course for those who are at least three months out from their loss, but you may find benefit sooner.

Hello, we are Litsa and Eleanor, the co-founders of the website, What's Your Grief. Thank you for joining our online learning community. We hope some of what you find here will help you understand grief an grief coping a little bit better.

We are what we like to refer to as 'grief friends.' We both have backgrounds in mental health and plenty of experience working in the field of grief and bereavement. But what we ultimately bonded over was our shared experience of losing a parent to cancer in early adulthood. All our webinars and online courses are based on the ideas and information we've found most helpful in our personal grief, and in our daily work with grieving people.

We teach all our webinars and courses, so we should probably tell you, we prefer to talk about grief and loss in realistic and regular ways. If you're looking for transformative butterflies and sympathetic head tilts, I'm afraid you've come to the wrong place. Sometimes we're serious, and sometimes we joke, sometimes we're matter of fact, and sometimes we're philosophical. No matter what, though, we believe your experience with grief should always be recognized and respected, not patronized.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this course work?
This mini-course starts as soon as you register. On Day One, you will have access to the first coping exercise. The following day, the exercise for Day Two will be released, and so on. The challenge is to finish the course in 10 days by completing each day's coping exercise - BUT - you do not have to. You will continue to have access to the course and all its lessons beyond 10 days.
