"Grieving Journal: Amidst The Storm.

After my mom passed in Aug. 2020 due to COVID-19,

I've created my own healing method for grieving.

Painting has become a vital role in this process.

I'm painting an image that aligns with

the voice journal

I made days after my mom died.

Grief Scales -

Directory of grief scales for

measuring the intensity of your grief

groups and tools

to help measure

the intensity or level of our grief




Weill Cornell Center for Research on End-of-Life Care  

Cornell University  

https://endoflife.weill.cornell.edu/research/grief-intensity-scale - Link to Grief Scale:

​"This Grief Intensity Scale assesses common thoughts, feelings, and behaviors of people who have lost someone important to them. The scale is meant to capture the grieving respondent’s intensity of his or her reaction to the loss. This diagnostic tool helps assess a person’s risk of developing prolonged grief disorder (PGD) following the death of a loved one. There are particular symptoms that must be elevated at 6 months in order to meet criteria for PGD. If a respondent meets criteria, he or she should seek out more thorough evaluation from a mental health professional. We have this scale available in a variety of languages."



Psychcentral Grief & Loss Quiz 

https://psychcentral.com/quizzes/grief-quiz/ 

"This quiz is designed to help give you understand whether you may be affected by complicated grief due to the death or loss of a loved one"



Oxford Academy

https://academic.oup.com/gerontologist/advance-article/doi/10.1093/geront/gny161/5245336

"A Brief, 6-Item Scale for Caregiver Grief in Dementia Caregiving. Abstract: Purpose - Caregivers of persons with dementia (PWD) can experience loss and grief long before the death of the person. Although such experience of caregiver grief is measurable, available scales (such as the Marwit–Meuser Caregiver Grief Inventory, MM-CGI) are lengthy and have overlaps with other caregiving constructs. We developed a briefer scale that captures the essence of caregiver grief—with comparable psychometric properties and total score to MM-CGI, as well as less overlap with other caregiving constructs."​




CESD-R Depression Scale

"The Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CESD) was created in 1977 by Laurie Radloff, and revised in 2004 by William Eaton and others. The CESD-R is a screening test for depression and depressive disorder. The CESD-R measures symptoms defined by the American Psychiatric Association' Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-V) for a major depressive episode"

"Honoring a Loved One ||

Processing Grief Through

Art Journaling

September 27 marked the 3 year anniversary

of the passing of my grandmother,

whom we all called Mémé.

Her passing was rather sudden and very unexpected.

She was my rock, support, sanctuary.

As the anniversary date approached,

I took some time to surround myself with her memory, and process my love and grief

through art journaling"
