A key element of both the Walking Through Grief singles and the Walking Through Grief toolkit is an "in their own words," where people along the journey share all aspects of the grief journey including the pain, shock, hope and healing.

Create your own learning environment by starting and stopping the videos as needed to emphasize and reinforce your learning environment.

Use the Walking Through Grief singles with the expertise of hosts Alan Pederson and Darcie Sims; Alan is a nationally known singer, songwriter and speaker on grief and loss. Darcie, one of the foremost authorities in the field of grief and loss shares her wit and wisdom as well as her compassion and understanding, which come from her personal experiences and formal education to teach an approximately 1 hour class on a variety of grief topics, including:
