Graduating Through Grief

The purpose of this project is to examine the grief process through the lens of those who have participated in it. Reading memoirs and accounts of those who have experienced grief opens up a world that is otherwise not reflected in the texts and research on grief. My own experience through grief was validated and the pain lessened by reading others’ stories of grief (bibliotherapy). I decided to write my own story, share it with others, and learn from and share feedback with those who were also grieving a loss. The culmination of this project was a presentation to participants who had read my story, and a discussion on grief and the use of bibliotherapy followed.
