An Introduction to Group Grieving and Healing This film is a tool to help yo bring your group attendance up. It is a platform to help reach clients that often defer group counseling although they could benefit i.e. those unfamiliar with talk therapy and those inhibited about expressing their emotions due to restraints of culture, gender, or age. We recommend that it be shown as part of an introductory evening/afternoon to your program offerings and that you take questions or go over your offerings/schedule afterwards.
RULES OF USE: Unlike private home DVDs, these films may be shown under Non-Theatrical Exhibition rules to groups of up to fifty (50) people at a time provided no admission is charged for any portion of your event. Standard copyright law applies and you are not allowed to distribute this DVD/film elsewhere or upload it or otherwise transmit it. Read about Non-Theatrical Exhibition here.
