Grief. It doesn’t just hit you when you have lost a dear one. It hits you when plans change, hopes are dashed (even not permanently so), and when in transition. Maybe you are saying goodbye to a neighbourhood you had been in, even if you are moving to supposedly greener pastures. Maybe it’s a sports game you can’t play anymore. We sure have had a lot of grief to deal with this season of COVID. And for many, traumatic as well, because of the suddenness of changes.
In these two Focus on the Family podcasts, Mardi Sheahan, a counsellor and trainer in Grief and Bereavement explores what is grief, how we process it, and how we help ourselves and others going through it.
