All About Grief

Grief ,Disenfranchised Grief, Public, and Private Mourning

3 months ago

In this episode we have an honest dialogue about grief and the collective grief we all are experiencing. 

We open up this week as we discuss the issue of grief and the challenges that come from trying to process “the natural reaction to loss”.We ask the questions like why do Americans struggle with identifying, expressing, and processing grief? How do we cope with grief that isn’t death related? And are there different types of grief? In this episode you’ll hear:

  • About different types of grief 
  • Private (Personal) vs Public (Collective) Grief
  • During this time of Covid-19 many are experiencing many forms and levels of grief 
  • Disenfranchised grief 
  • Different things we can/are grieving about
  • The decolonization of mental health and mindsets
  • Who gets to grief?
  • Why we should grieve with one another 

In this episode we mention our past episode where we mention similar topics that might be helpful we have them listed below. We have also linked the NPR episode about grief and the website with other types of griefs as well. We hope this will be helpful to you. 

Episode 43: Social Media Etiquette. Episode 45: Mental Health and Self Care Episode 38: Intergenerational Trauma

We truly needed to end the show with a Happy Place after this topic: *hint - beautiful walks and  small glimpses of hope give us all the feels.
