As we continue to identify specific behaviors women can practice to love a man through his grief, the question raised is “how much is too much?”  In relationships it’s common for one partner to act out their frustrations of a hard day on the ones closet to you.  In the case of men who are grieving the loss of employment, pride, masculinity, and even the loss of a child to death, one way to deal with this is to lash out at the wife, girlfriend, or live in lover.

In last week shows we introduced the topic of grief /loss, signs and symptoms in mothers, women, fathers and men. It brought us to this point where we recognize by default women have more emotional support available to them then their male counterparts. Many women of various ages and cultures question how to support a grieving man, and how to recognize when the support can become enabling, co-dependent, or a hindrance to grow, and emotional healing.

Join us on Talk Back Tuesdays with 3 Counselors and a Couch.  Men we would love to hear from you on how we as women can be the support you need to make it through difficult times.

Lets answer questions like “ Is sex a healthy or harmful distraction for men who are dealing with grief and loss?”  Come get on the couch.
