For those of you who have lost.

Offer of bereavement groups for students

If you have lost a parent, grandparent, brother, sister, friend or someone else who was close to you, and you would like to talk to others in the same situation, then a grief group might be for you.

In the grief group, we talk openly about the many thoughts and feelings that arise when grief and loss have set a new agenda in our lives. Who am I now? How do I move on with my life? What do I do with myself when grief fills everything? Who can I talk to? Who understands me?

A grief group is not a miracle cure that makes the grief go away, but it is an opportunity to meet others in the same situation and to know and feel that you are not alone. Joining a grief group can help ease the pain and give you courage for the future.

How does it take place?

The grief groups meet a total of approximately 8-10 times either at SDU or at UCL either in the spring or autumn semester.

There can be max. 8 participants in a group and you must be registered in advance.

It costs nothing to participate.

Preliminary interview

Before we meet in the grief group for the first time, you will be invited to a cup of coffee/tea, where we will have the opportunity to meet each other, and where you can hear more about what it means to join a grief group.

Who is responsible for the grief group at SDU?

The grief groups are led by Lene Crone Nielsen, student chaplain at SDU, in collaboration with Thomas Hårbøl, student chaplain at UCL.

What to do?

If you are interested in hearing more about the grief group, you are very welcome to contact student pastor Lene Crone Nielsen.
