Testimonials for our Certification Training Program

Having participated in grief support groups myself this past year, this training was so helpful and eye opening! I have a completely new perspective on grief and loss.

Coming into the training, I had no idea what it was. All I wanted to do was help people. I had been told in the past that I was a great listener and that people felt safe sharing their feelings with me. I signed up knowing that I would come out knowing skills that could help others. I was only half right! I came out of this weekend a changed woman! I’m looking at relationships in a different way! I’m looking at people in a different way! I understand that people are hurting and the things they do stem from that. It helps me have much more compassion on everyone I see or interact with. I’m grateful that I have the ability and tools to help other people find this life changing method, and I’m so excited to see what happens next! On a side note, though still extremely important, my training group was privileged to meet John and spend time with him. It was an honor to be able to listen to him, ask him questions, to have a picture with him, and to be able to give him a hug. It was an experience I will never forget! What an incredible heart John has. Thank you all for everything!

I cam to this training with a huge dose of skepticism. I truly expected a sales job on something that would not work. I was asked to trust the process and I did my best to do so. I left on Monday being fully convinced that the "process" does work and I am excited about the opportunity to present this to people in the days to come.

I loved the program. I an diagnosed with PTSD due to MST (military sexual trauma). This was the first program I felt complete with my grief/losses due to PTSD. This program gave me hope again.

The Grief Recovery Training exceeded my expectations, both with the instructor and the recovery method. It has helped me with the healing process of my broken heart and now I am able to move forward on helping others with their broken hearts!

I originally came to this class with the idea to support and better understand my wife who is currently a specialist. I left with a new found respect on the method and a passion to not only apply what I learned to my own life, but to share and educate others.

I have been through the 8-week group session already. I love telling people about the benefit of this method! After finishing the certification training I feel fully equipped to help others, who have experienced any type of loss, to complete their relationships.

I really wasn't sure what to expect from the grief recovery specialist certification training, and in some ways I was dreading the weekend a little. But from the moment I walked in the room I was so comfortable with what took place, even though I was "out of my comfort zone" through many personal exercises. Our trainer was amazing, and did an exceptional job at helping us work through all the exercises. I really wondered why my buddy was chosen for me, but by the end of the weekend I knew it had been the perfect fit. I walked into a room of 15 strangers, and left with 15 new friends. I highly recommend this training to anyone who wants to have some relevant, practical tools for dealing with grief.

I am very satisfied with the GRM training program. It definitely went beyond my expectations. Ed Owens is a wonderful trainer. I have all the tools to help my clients deal with their loss. I highly recommend the training.

The Grief Recovery Method truly works! The training itself takes you through the recovery process. What better way to learn how you can implement this Method for others than to go through it yourself?! It is transformational and I would recommend it to everyone.

I've suffered from loss my entire life. I've lived with the pain that associated with all of that loss and for the first time ever now feel completely equipped to not only complete my loss with my relationships but equally equipped to help others experience the same kind of completion around their losses. Thanks GRM, you've made a huge difference in my life and as a result the ripple effect will affect and assist many others in a very positive way.

Thank you for all the books and written materials. I will undoubtedly use this stuff in the future.

I learned a lot about grief and recovery. The myths and methods for recovery were very helpful and will enhance my work with survivors.

05/01/2018

I am astounded by the depth that I and others in my group went to over this 4 day training. I have new tools that I feel are critical to my own recovery from loss. I am thrilled that I am being offered new possibilities to also help others heal authentically. I am so grateful! Thank You!

I found this training to be highly relevant and practical to my work as a Hospice Bereavement Coordinator as well as insightful for giving care to friends and family - and myself!

The experience of the certification training is both healing and tranformative. Taking the journey into the heart of your pain and being in a safe space to bring it to the surface where raw emotion can be expressed in a safe supportive environment and actually complete your loss is invaluable. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Grief Recovery institute!

I just completed my GRMT and has a wonderful experience. The program is very well organized, and the tools provided surpassed my expectation. It’s amazing how much we fit into four days. Just a wonderful program and I feel very grateful to have found it.

the instructor was very sensitive to my vision impairment and treated me with respect an no different than the sighted people in the group. this demonstrated her compassion as a person and I greatly appreciated her. Bobbie is an excellent representative of the compassion and understanding needed to be a Grief Recovery Specialist. it was my pleasure to meet her and be under her teaching.

The grief recovery process works as participants are encouraged to work on their unresolved issues of grief and loss in a safe environment. How liberating that was? Thanks to our trainer, Bobbie Rill for the positive experience.

It was a real eye opener for me. I thought I knew a lot about grief when in reality I did not have the slightest clue. I am not confident and enriched with tremendous knowledge that I can now share with others, thanks to this training.

The seminar was absolutely amazing! Lois was our instructor and she was excellent at teaching the concepts and making sure we fully understood what we were learning. She was well-organized, patient and engaging. The four days went so fast and by the end of the training none of us wanted to leave. We had dealt bonded and that made learning about grief easy and comfortable. I highly recommend this training.
