Men's Aftercare Materials

Fellow Selected members, I'm looking for any information you can provide specifically for men trying to handle grief. Books, DVDs, newsletters, etc. Anything! Thank you in advance

Response 1

Here is a link to many resources available through Centering Corporation regarding grieving men: I have heard several men who appreciated "The Widowers Toolbox" book. At HeartLight Center, our non-profit grief support center, we have a men's grief group. Many men will come to our open grief support groups but we wanted to add a group where men could meet with each other, especially following the death of their spouse or partner. Hope this can help.

Here is a resource we use from Dr. Bill Hoy (the member attached a document containing a list of grief brochures). He has 14 topical brochures that we use and give away to Hospice, Social Workers and the public and are on our website as a free download. Here is the list of his topical brochures that we give away. This is copyrighted material and you can contact GriefConnect, Inc.

What our members are saying

"The networking you gain through Selected is an invaluable opportunity for a funeral home. It’s hard to explain it to people who are not members of an organization like this and maybe don’t understand the benefit. Selected’s policy of membership by invitation only ensures that you are going to get the best possible members who have like-minded ideas about funeral service."
