handouts for grief in the workplace

Hi all, I compiled the responses to my request for materials for a handout for grieving coworkers.  Such great resources!  Thank you.  

Here’s a blog that might help:

I really love this LA times article:

You can find the article online but the google doc has a picture of the “silk ring theory”.  You give comfort inward towards the people most affected by a tragedy or hardship and you dump your feelings outward towards those less affected by the tragedy than you.
