10 Tips for Helping People Cope with Deep Grief:

  1. First, when someone is grieving, they may not want to hear advice; instead, they want you to focus on how they feel. It is better to say nothing or admit that you are at a loss for words than make statements such as: “this is God’s will” or “it can always be worse.”
  2. When someone is experiencing trauma related grief, it is important to understand that in order to help the individual through the process, you must have a healthy and safe relationship with one another.
