The Grief of Non-Death Losses

Webinar Recording

Grief is a response to loss, and loss can take many forms. For example, losses like divorce, estrangement, addiction, mental illness, traumatic brain injury, job loss, infertility, and loss of home are by far capable of causing complicated emotions, difficulty in daily functioning, and other grief-related experiences and responses.

In this webinar, we will discuss concepts related to non-death losses, including secondary, disenfranchised, and ambiguous loss.

Hello, we are Litsa and Eleanor, the co-founders of the website, What's Your Grief. Thank you for joining our online learning community. We hope some of what you find here will help you understand grief an grief coping a little bit better.  

We are what we like to refer to as 'grief friends.' We both have backgrounds in mental health and plenty of experience working in the field of grief and bereavement. But what we ultimately bonded over was our shared experience of losing a parent to cancer in early adulthood. All our webinars and online courses are based on the ideas and information we've found most helpful in our personal grief, and in our daily work with grieving people.  

We teach all our webinars and courses, so we should probably tell you, we prefer to talk about grief and loss in realistic and regular ways. If you're looking for transformative butterflies and sympathetic head tilts, I'm afraid you've come to the wrong place. Sometimes we're serious, and sometimes we joke, sometimes we're matter of fact, and sometimes we're philosophical. No matter what, though, we believe your experience with grief should always be recognized and respected, not patronized.
