    Episode 285: Grief and New Relationships & Secondhand Trauma

    Hello, all! I hope that you are having a fantastic week. Unfortunately, omicron has found its way into the Duff household, but alas... the show must go on!
    I have a great Q&A episode with the following questions submitted by listeners like you:
    My wife died two years ago, and I am still completely closed off to romantic connections. What can I do? Is it possible to be traumatized by hearing about something bad happening to someone else? As always, you can send questions to duffthepsych@gmail.com and find the show notes at http://duffthepsych.com/episode285
