Playing A Dinner Party to Help Ease the Pain of Grief

The grieving process is never easy and each person will handle a loss or a death in a different way. 

The Doctors share a new way survivors are coming together to cope with loss. Each week, people gather for a virtual dinner party, where they share their loss and find support among others who are dealing with a death. 

Participants in the group are finding comfort in sharing their experiences and reveal the cliche things we often hear, like, "Everything happens for a reason" and "She is at peace now," might sound good in the moment, but do not actually help someone who is grieving.

Clinical psychiatrist Dr. Domenick Sportelli says grief can cause people left behind to feel isolated and alone, and says he loves how the dinner party brings people together when they need it the most. In addition to not being alone in your grief, he says this approach can help someone mourning learn new ways to cope with a loss, along with celebrating the life of those you have lost.

Grief is not something you have to endure alone and resources and potential support can be found at The Dinner Party.
