    006: The Models & Process of Grief

    006: The Models & Process of Grief

    Pop quiz: how many stages of grief are there?


    ...WRONG! The question should be, which grief model applies to you and in which way? In this episode, Maria and Ammo go through entirely different models of grieving. That’s right – there’s more than just the five stages model that we’re all so familiar with… but they also touch on why you’re remembering that one incorrectly, too!


    Focusing on the story of a man called Edgar, they apply the Elisabeth Kubler-Ross ‘Five Stages Model’ and other ones such as the ‘Attachment Model,’ the ‘Phase Model,’ and more.


    Happy listening!

    004: Bereavement Laws: Your Rights

    004: Bereavement Laws: Your Rights

    According to the laws here in Canada, grief only affects you for three days… because that’s when your employer is federally entitled to stop paying you. 


    From industrial revolution-era labour laws to a game of “bereavement laws – true or false?”, join Maria and Ammo as they uncover just how little The Boss Man cares. Finally, they’ve got some pointers to help workplaces better equip themselves for when an employee’s loved one passes away.


    Happy listening!
