Bereavement Support for Those Who are Grieving and Healing

You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. It helps to be with others who understand what you are going through. NYU Winthrop’s bereavement support groups provide a safe, supportive and nurturing environment for those who have experienced a loss to express their emotions and thoughts or just sit in silence, as they move through the grief process.

NYU Winthrop’s bereavement support groups introduce participants to various tools for exploring issues of grief and loss related to the death of a loved one.

They explore feelings such as sadness, pain, anger, guilt and despair, and give participants coping strategies during the various stages of grief, with a goal toward healing. Dedicated bereavement support groups are available for those who have lost a loved one to cancer.

Because children grieve differently from adults, NYU Winthrop also offers a Precious Moments bereavement support group for children ages eight through 12.

For more information about bereavement support groups held at NYU Winthrop, as well as special topic seminars that are held throughout the year, call 1-866-WINTHROP or email bereavement@nyuwinthrop.org.
