“You tell me that the world outside is in a hurry, asks you to speed up and calm your longing.
I tell you that the world outside sometimes , there are narrow streets for pain ”1

“You tell me that the world outside is in a hurry, asks you to speed up and calm your longing.
I tell you that the world outside sometimes , there are narrow streets for pain ”1
Teresa Vera de Souza Gouvêa

 

Listening to a group gives the individual the opportunity to
process what he feels, because, as Tavares points out, “the creation of contexts that favor
expression of pain tends to contribute to coping and elaborating the grieving process,
minimizing social isolation and professional distance ”2

However, talking about the loss of important affections has
become increasingly difficult in today's society. While the time of mourning, always so
individual, requires comings and goings, in a constant alternation between past and future, death and
resumption of life, the time of our time demands, from the individual, a constant look towards
ahead, an ignoring of past and pain. Today's society has transformed human beings into
projects to be executed - and in these projects there is no room for the dark room that is the pain of mourning. After all, this sentiment room would not look good either in the
Instagram post or in the curriculum that presents us (always) as proactive and willing to grow.
The mourner finds himself lonely, without finding the box resonance
that allows you to process the grief, the ear that opens compassionate to your pain, the other mourning
that serves as a mirror. Your loneliness is a double loneliness - that of the uniqueness of your pain, which is peculiar and unique; and that of not finding ways to share it through
narrative, and thus build meaning for the loss.

It is in this second loneliness - that of not having how or with whom
to share - that the SobreViver group acts. By creating a space for listening, it gives the mourner an opportunity to speak - and when speaking, to listen. It offers the chance to live
with other mourners - and to find mirrors in them that reflect their pain and offer
different ways of dealing with loss. The presence of qualified therapists, in turn,
offers the necessary guidance and continence for the group to function properly.
