Brattleboro Area Hospice Grief & Loss: Expression through Writin

September 28, 2015  |  By  |  Impressions: 147  | 


The power of words to move grief through us is real and available to all. Recent brain science studies have shown that naming emotional experiences, and describing them with written words, alters their intensity in the direction of release. In our annual report this year we are honored to share with you several pieces of writing about grief, along with an in-depth interview with a bereaved mother and father. These offerings come from members of our community, and we are deeply grateful to these individuals for their generosity in allowing us to use them. We hope they will inspire you to find your own words to express what may lie hidden in your heart. ~Connie Baxter, Bereavement Care Coordinator
