Coping With Heightened Grief Over The Holidays w Therapist Melissa Brohner-Schneider
Feelings of loss can intensify over the holidays. Whether the loved one passed several years ago or more recently, we can feel melancholy and even stressed out at the prospect of putting on a face of "good cheer." Sometimes we feel like breaking down and crying, yet we feel guilty if we do; explore the pain or ignore the pain? Licensed therapist Melissa Brohner-Schneider expects that, for some of us, this year grief will expand to all the losses due to the pandemic: freedom, jobs, connection etc. Melissa analyzes those feelings and the resulting isolation that often occurs and she offers several coping strategies—things you can do to feel better as well as ways to grieve in a healthy manner. She and Linda also discuss David Kessler's "sixth stage of grief" from his book Finding Meaning, which imparts meaning and peace to loss.
