There are different ways of expressing grief. In her ground breaking work, Eleanor describes the act of providing care to chronically ill family members as an expression of grief. Eleanor took the styles of instrumental and intuitive grieving originally devised for death related circumstances and applied them into the caregiving experience, especially in dealing with progressive and chronic conditions.
In this episode, Dr. Ken Doka, a leading expert in thanatology and grief counseling is Eleanor's guest, speaking about the instrumental style of grieving that he was involved in developing and writing about as co-author of the (2000) book Men Don't Cry, Women Do: Transcending Gender Stereotypes of Grief and then the (revised 2010) book Grieving Beyond Gender: Understanding the Ways Men and Women Mourn .
Eleanor applied these styles and other grief models intended for death related circumstances to family caregivers in her 2007 article Introducing the 3-A Grief Intervention Model for Dementia Caregivers:: Acknowledge, Assess, Assist.

On Tuesday July 16th, I am pleased to welcome Psychologist, Dr. Janice Hynes to our show.
Dr. Hynes is a licensed clinical psychologist who has been practicing for over 20 years. She provides individual, couples, and family therapy and specializes in stress management and anxiety reduction. She also served as the sole caretaker for each of her parents in their final years. Dr. Hynes regularly offers group presentations on anxiety management, conflict resoulution, and “Extreme Self-Care for Extreme Situations”
Are you your own worst critic? We are all engaged in a constant dialogue with ourselves. All too often, this takes the form of a battle. You can learn to ease this inner conflict and become more effective in times of stress. Dr. Hynes combines information about how our brain chemistry functions in times of stress with how we can more compassionately care for our psychological self. Through our conversation with Dr. Hynes, we will all learn how to 'Be A Healthy Caregiver.'
"In the course of a day..."
"Every caregiver has been there: completely stressed, at our wits' end, wanting to scream or laugh or cry (or all three). And while it's nice to imagine that there's some magic way to make all that tension vanish, caregivers know better. Caregiving is stressful, day in and day out. There's no quick and easy cure for that." (quoted from Caring.com.Caregiving and Stress, May 28,2013)
