Vera Lloyd Presbyterian Family Services is now offering the proven Grief Recovery Method through its Laurence E. Schmidt Counseling Center in Little Rock.

The Grief Recovery Institute designed the action-based program to help people move from grief to living life fully again. The program helps people who have experienced a death of a loved one, death of a pet, divorce, move, retirement, loss of trust, loss faith, loss of fertility or other major life change.

The Schmidt Center, located at 1501 N. University Ave. in the Prospect Building, offers either the 12-week group format or seven-week one-on-one format.

"The Grief Recovery Method gives you a series of actions to verbalize your feelings and complete the pain associated with those feelings," Jenny Caldwell, LCSW, Schmidt Center director, said.
