In this episode we talk about grief and loss with our good friend and clinician, Allison. In part one we take an open minded and broad view of grief as we discuss how our personal experiences led us to want to tackle this complex and difficult subject. Self-care and coping skills are examined as we look to help ourselves, and our listeners, learn to deal with intense emotions in a healthy way. We look at how grieving has changed in the era of social media, and how sites like Facebook and Instagram have broadened our circle of friends and acquaintances and thus increased the number of people involved in our very private and sometimes intensely personal grieving process. Join us for part one and let us know what you think and maybe how we can help.
