Today is September 11th. Seventeen years after the 9/11 tragedy that impacted the lives of every American in some way, it’s important to realize that thousands who were directly affected by this darkest of days are still carrying an unimaginable burden of grief day after day.
Today's special guest, world renowned grief psychotherapist Edy Nathan, LCSWR, was one of the only women therapists at ground zero where she was called upon to apply all of her skills to negotiate the ocean of hopelessness, loss and destruction. According to Nathan, everyone’s experience of trauma, abuse, or the loss of a loved one is as unique as a fingerprint, and in truth, you never really get over the resulting grief but learn to integrate it into your life.
In Edy Nathan's newly published book It’s Grief: The Dance of Self-Discovery Through Trauma and Loss she says grief, trauma and loss can strike in a moment, today, or from a long past memory retrieved—and disrupt the norms in every part of your life. Her practical insights can help you get your life back.
