Is it Holiday “HO HO HO” Time, or “NO NO NO” Time? Caregivers Dealing With Grief

Toula's Tips For Caregivers

04-12-2019 • 22 mins

This Holiday Season is supposed to be the most joyous time of the year. For most people. But not for all of us.

How do you feel, Toula? Are you singing, "HO. HO. HO.", or "NO. NO. NO."?

Do you know others who are dealing with the STRESS of the season? Or the GRIEF of missing a loved one now? Or maybe someone having “anticipatory grief” for someone who is very ill?

I understand. I still miss my Mom and Dad, and my son.

But there is still joy to be found in this Season. And, it is okay to feel sad and glad.

My special guest on this podcast is a friend who can help you. Rachel Weinstein is an authority on the topic of grief. She holds a Master's Degree in Education, with a specialty in Counseling and Counselor Education, from Indiana University. Rachel spent the early part of her career as a general psychotherapist, and later began specializing in the area of grief, loss, and life transition.

Rachel is also an expert because she has lost people close to her, and has had to deal with those conflicting emotions.

In this podcast, Rachel shares some practical ways we can cope with our feelings. She offers some simple actions we can take during the holidays to honor those we are grieving.

Rachel is here to help you. If you find yourself having difficulty coping with a loss, and coping with the Holidays, contact Rachel by calling: (409) 540 – 4950, or email her at JaxCenterForGrief@gmail.com.

I hope you also will gain some insight and comfort from this podcast

Holiday Blessings
