The Heart of Grief
Episode 1, The Grief of Change
Jul 11, 2020 Season 1 Episode 1
Cover Art: "Big" Jim Miller; Program Music: Georgia Sound "Something New"

In this, our first, full episode, we will discuss the grief that results from changes and endings of various kinds. The covid-19 restrictions, concerns and uncertainties have created many losses in our lives that we would do well to recognize as grief events. Normal, grief responses should be expected. We examine how many of the typical ways we respond to loss and common messages we receive, are not helpful. We underscore the importance of acknowledging change both as a compounding factor in a bereavement, and a cause of additional grief experiences. Working Defn. “Grief is the wide ranging and often conflicting feelings that result from a change in or end of a familiar pattern of behavior.”
