Gloria Horsley, a psychotherapist and grief expert, writes in her blog about a boomer who lost four family members in about a year and a half. How she experienced grief, the author notes, was not the "traditional way." And, how many times do we ask ourselves if our reactions to certain life-altering events are "normal"?
Horsley goes on to give a few key pieces of advice that might help you when talking to your clients about planning, death and grief. It also helps one to become self-aware of these feelings and emotions, and to "listen to you own instincts and needs."
