There's a right way and a wrong way to deal with grief. And even with the very best coping skills, grief is still painful. The holidays can be very challenging for people who have recently lost someone near and dear to them.
Sometimes people never deal with the grief, and are still suffering years after a loved one has died. We can show you some techniques and ways of thinking through grief, so that you can reduce your suffering while still honoring the memory of the person you loved. Clarissa and Jennifer will discuss some right ways and wrong ways to deal with grief.

“Who’s going to carve the turkey this year now that Dad has died?”
Thanksgiving, Christmas, Chanukah, Ramadan, Kwanza and New Year’s Day are annual holidays that can be a very difficult time for people who have experienced the death of someone loved. Holidays force us to realize how much our lives have been changed by the loss of our loved one. Particularly in the first year, many bereaved are left with having to develop new holiday rituals and traditions. Judy Brizendine, author of award-winning books, STUNNED by Grief and STUNNED by Grief Journal, will gently guide us through the chaos and confusion of coping with grief, especially during the Holidays, in a realistic, revealing, personal, and practical way.
Judy Brizendine--author, blogger, and speaker--is a woman with a passionate mission that developed as a result of a tragic loss. The statement, “Out of your deepest pain comes your greatest gift,” describes her experience.
Judy’s goal is to meet you wherever you are, and connect with you in such a way that you’ll know you can make it through this experience and discover a new sense of hope and direction.

The holidays aren't always so happy for everyone.
Do you dread attending parties and gatherings alone? Do past memories of a loved one who is no longer around make you feel sad and depressed? Maybe you just don't feel like singing carols, hanging decorations, or shopping for gifts. Maybe it's just all too overwhelming.
For many, the holidays only intensify the grief and pain inside, and it can be difficult to be around others or to connect with the joy of the season.
If that's you today, tune in as we talk to Greif Counselor/Educator, Tonya Cunningham, Founder of Tonya Cunningham Ministries. Hear her story of grief, loss, and finally, redemption. It will give you hope!

In the first show and second segment, I discussed the positive and negative strategies couples use to maintain a relationship and stay close during pregnancy. An example of positive behaviors to keep the relationship close is being open in a relationship. An example of negative behaviors explained in the second show is using avoidance or deception (which is not always bad) as a way to make sure the relationship is as normal as possible during pregnancy. In this third segment, I will have a female guest (who just gave birth) explain her experiences with the positive and negative ways she and her husband maintained their relationship during pregnancy and offering tips for future pregnant partners. Please join me and call in to share your feedback.
Given the intense bond most of us share with our animals, it’s natural to feel devastated by feelings of grief and sadness. While some people may not understand the depth of feeling you had for your pet, you should never feel guilty or ashamed about grieving for an animal friend. Instead, use these healthy ways to cope with the loss, comfort yourself and others, and begin the process of moving on.
For many people a pet is not “just a dog” or “just a cat.” Pets are beloved members of the family and, when there is detachment, you feel a significant, even traumatic loss. The level of grief depends on factors such as your age and personality, the age of your pet, and the circumstances. Generally, the more significant the loss, the more intense the grief you’ll feel.
We never forget our beloved pets, no matter how long it has been since they departed. The holiday season is traditionally a time of anticipation, excitement and celebration, but the mere thought, or prospect, of not having your pet with you can lead to trepidation and anxiety. On this episode you'll hear Sid Korpi, author of the book Good Grief, Finding Peace after Pet Loss discuss how to cope with your pet grief. As always, you will hear from our animal guest, as well as tips and ideas on how you can communicate with animals!
You don't have to be alone in experiencing you pet grief. Te Grieving Your Pet Over the Holidays e-Book and Audio prgram has suggestions and resources to help you cope with your pet grief this holiday season and is now available for purchase.
