Grief Right Now
In the Harvard Business Review, there was a recent article by Scott Berinato entitled That Discomfort You’re Feeling Is Grief. The article compares the emotions that so many Americans are feeling right now to the stages of grief.
These steps, which do not have to be experienced in order, describe how our students are feeling. Grieving does not have to mean the loss of a loved one, even though that is definitely a reason for pure grief. People can go through the process of grief when any type of loss is experienced. Our teenagers are feeling a great sense of loss, and it is important that we help them cope with the emotions from the loss.
As explained in the article, here are a few techniques to help people handle grief in a healthy manner.
- Focus on rational thoughts
- Try grounding exercises
- Control the controllables
- Practice patience
