The GRIEF Recovery method

The Grief Recovery Method® Group Program is a structured, 8-week group experience which creates a safe environment in which to look at old, unhelpful beliefs about dealing with loss and take recovery actions which lead to completion of the pain attached to bereavement. There are usually 3 separate 8-week sessions that take place at Martin Brothers Funeral Chapel each year. These groups are led by Grief Recovery Method® Specialists and Martin Brothers’ staff, Brian Magee, Lorri Penner RSW, and Trudie Slomp. Participant numbers are limited. Please call us at 403.328.2361 for more information.

NOTE: We now offer these programs in an online format for those who are unable to attend in person
