"Good Grief" is a free course designed for veterans and their caregivers: Grief is rarely associated with caregiving, but it is very common for Veteran caregivers. Grief is not only experienced with death, it can also occur with job loss or severe changes to physical well-being. The purpose of this course is to recognize loss and identify what is learned as a result of that loss. The course also provides several coping strategies and exercises that can be done at home. http://ow.ly/VEvw30j2iaM
