What’s in this podcast:

Grief and Loss and Not Getting Over It

3:45 Abraham is Karl Abraham who was the other theorist who discussed mourning with Freud

4:45 Grief is a battle between wanting to hold on while needing to let go.  It’s a slow process that expends cathartic energy. Cathartic energy is emotion expressed (crying, not sleeping, being anxious).

7:16 It’s normal to have fleeting thoughts of suicide when grieving.  When is it not normal?

8:15 Antidepressants will not take the feelings away.  If you are despairing, get a depression screening.

11:40 When you heal, it helps to pass it on.

13:40  Acceptance at the end of the grief process.

16:30 Let other people know that grief ends and you can heal.

17:25 Time does not heal all wounds.

20:35 The training that therapists don’t get

24:00 We need to be able to talk about grief and loss

25:00 CLARISSA (sorry!)

25:45 Why self-care is important

27:30 Give yourself permission to feel as bad as you really feel
