Julia Samuel’s first book Grief Works: Stories of Life, Death, And Surviving is organized by the type of loss; losing a parent, losing a child, and confronting your own death.
Is the way which someone grieves different by the loss or is it more defined by who they are?
Samuel is a psychotherapist specializing in grief who spent the last 25 years working with bereaved families. She recently joined Roxanne at RJ Julia to talk about grief as a process that's unique to every person, but universal in the need to be experienced and discussed.
Roxanne says, “I think the point that permeates throughout the book is the need to confront pain as part of the grieving process.”
