Learning to Speak About Grief in a Grief-avoidant Society | Free Documentary Viewing

Speaking Grief is a public media initiative aimed at creating a more grief-aware society by validating the experience of grievers and helping to guide those who wish to support them. This documentary features diverse representations of grief through candid interviews with families whose losses range from stillbirth to suicide.  

It validates grief as a normal, healthy part of the human experience rather than a problem that needs to be “fixed.” It also addresses the role that support from friends and family plays in a person’s grief experience, offering guidance on how to show up for people in their darkest moments.

After viewing the film, we’ll have a panel discussion and/or break into small virtual discussion groups where we can share about our response to the film and how it may be useful personally, in supporting others, and in creating a more grief-aware society within our local community and circles.
