There are also written resources as well as an extensive video library. Kessler says, “Not everyone in grief wants to read a book or go to a lecture or join a bereavement group. Some like the idea of watching a video dealing with their grief. That’s why we have a library of videos helping loved ones cope with different types of grief. In the new digital era, many people are more comfortable finding information and resources online.”
