Grief and the conflicting emotions caused by loss are cumulative and most often have a growing negative effect on our ability to participate in life. The primary goal of Edu-Therapy™ is to give people a solution to the pain, and focus on a solution-oriented process to rediscover their ability to fully experience and participate in their lives. Edu-Therapy™ effectively eliminates the griever’s sense of isolation, by actively engaging them in emotionally helpful and liberating exercises. The Grief Edu-Therapy Certification is a unique training program that teaches the specific tools to eliminate the emotional pain caused by loss of any type. For over 35 years, the care giving team at Edu-Therapy solutions have been helping grievers rid themselves of the conflicting emotions and the overwhelming pain as the result of cumulative unresolved losses. Our commitment to research and evidence-based solutions goes far beyond the short term “feel good” workshops, giving participants the ability to help themselves and help their community.

• Grief is an emotional experience that does not follow stages or a timeline, and does not simply go away with time
• It’s the actions within time that reduce and eliminate pain
• Grief happens in many forms and has great potential to create emotional energy and negatively effect your life and
those around you:
• Death of a loved one
• Ending of a relationship
• Suicide of someone close
• Adoption or foster care
• Loss of culture
• Change in career, finances or social status
