Common myths about grief

Common myths about grief

As employers, we need to prepare our managers to help those affected by grief, whether they be working at home or in their workplace.

Grieving is a highly individual experience; there’s no right or wrong way to grieve. There are some myths that managers need to be aware of so they can help others and themselves:
Common myths
· It’s important to ‘be strong’ in time of loss – not true
· The pain will go away if you ignore it and stay busy – not helpful
· Moving on with your life means forgetting about your loss – not at all true

We all need to accept that grief can trigger many different and unexpected emotions, it is a unique feeling, we should seek out support from others and take care emotionally and physically.
