We continue our series on grief with our friend LPC Chuck Olliff, discussing how the unexpected responsibilities after a death can surprise us and amplify our grief. Jerry and Helen ask how to manage the emotions that occur with grief milestones like receiving a death certificate or ashes of a loved one.
How do we react to that wave of grief that knocks us down? Chuck offers some options to help us explore how we process those grief events that we couldn’t anticipate, including that “year of firsts” that comes after a death.
