Description

I thought I knew quite a bit about grief. Then on a beautiful, ordinary summer day in 2009, I watched my partner drown. If anyone could be prepared to deal with that kind of loss, it should have been me. But none of what I’d learned as a psychotherapist mattered. And when I found myself on the other side of the clinician’s couch, I discovered firsthand how outdated beliefs about grief fail us after loss.

It's time for a change. The pandemic has brought grief to the forefront of cultural consciousness. With more people seeking professional support for multiple losses, the need for skilled providers is vast – and most providers feel not only overwhelmed by their clients’ grief, they’re facing their own cascading losses as well. Watch me for a critical recorded session on the future of grief work, exploring the skills needed to de-pathologize and rehumanize grief… for our clients, for ourselves, and for the wider world.
