Palisades, NY (PRWEB) January 30, 2014
The heart of AfterTalk is its Private Conversations feature, a secure, private place for the grieving to employ therapeutic writing to maintain a virtual “conversation” with their deceased love one. AfterTalk’s founders believe that grief can be alleviated by continuing a conversation with those who have passed, sharing one’s daily experiences, thoughts, feelings, joys, frustrations and memories as they had during their time together. AfterTalk gives the grieving the opportunity to simulate connectedness while the healing process progresses.
“For many, it is the silence death brings that is most painful. We are accustomed to a full day cycle of communication with those we love, everything from chatting over breakfast, to phone calls during the day, to pillow talk before sleep,” says co-founder Larry Lynn.
Our Family and Friends feature offers the grieving a place where they can invite selected family and friends to share thoughts, memories and photographs about the deceased in a place not accessible to the public. “It’s a place where you can memorialize without the whole world watching,” adds AfterTalk co-founder Lisa Bogatin.
And for more sharing, AfterTalk's grief forum intends to bring together people who have experienced a specific loss, like “Mothers Who Have Lost a Child,” “For Widows and Widowers: Sex and the Recently Bereaved,” or “For Those Who Have Lost a Parent.” For advice our blog discusses “Grieving and Dating: How to Get Started,” “Grief Counseling: Good News for Medicare Recipients” and other important topics.
For more help, the AfterTalk Resource Center links visitors to products and information to support those who have experienced a loss. Books, DVDs, blogs, helpful links and a fully stocked Sympathy Store are among its features.
