Try: #invite the cr to take time daily to write in the journal about the grief experience writing can be free style where the cr simply writes about events of the day or whatever is on his or her mind with no rules #as an alternative you can guide the cr through a writing program aimed at addressing his or loss assign writing topics such as ## make a list of grief feeling words such as fear anger worry and relief; ## finish the sentence today i missed you when ##the happiest memory i have of my loved one is #after some time has passed ask the cr to discuss the journal and grieving experience with you #be prepared to validate the cr’s feelings as you listen #over time the cr may find it easier to express thoughts feelings about the loss of the loved one
