NEW YORK, Dec. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- This year, one third of the population will experience Holiday Grief. Not only do we grieve for those who have died, but most relationships breakups occur this time of year. This year will be different in terms of resources to get them though the holidays. One new place to find help is online. Meet grief.com a new online resource developed by grief and loss expert, David Kessler, the protégé of the legendary grief expert Elisabeth Kübler Ross (the five stages of grief).
Grief.com has 2 million visitors a year from155 countries. Kessler says, "It was my author website, but after the sudden death of my 21-year-old son, it had to be more, I had to give hope. The holidays are brutal for those in grief and friends and family don't know what to say or how to help. That's why thousands visit daily "The best and worst things to say in grief." When we are dealing with a bereaved loved one, we are often in search of the right thing to say and want to make sure we don't say the wrong thing."
