    There were grief counselors at our school the first week we were back after the holiday break, and they were available for both students and faculty.  At the time, I felt like I just needed to hold it together both for my students and my own way of coping with it during the school day - once I let the walls down at school, it would be hard to get them back in place, right? Anyway, I didn't see leaving one of my classes to talk to someone as the best option at the time.

    I was really hoping for a group because it seemed like it might be a less stressful environment - I could maybe sit back and listen at first rather than having the pressure to share, share, share about what happened and what I'm feeling immediately.  I'm an introvert by nature; so listening for a bit, and then joining in when I'm ready is more comfortable for me.  Individual therapy is something I'll explore though if I can't find an appropriate group soon and still feel that I need more help working through this.  Thanks for the advice :)
