Navigating grief and loss around the holidays

The holidays are meant to be a time to celebrate and rejoice, but a loved one’s death can make this time of year painful.

Host Angela Davis asked two guests to talk about this difficult subject. She was joined by Nora McInerny, author and host of the APM podcast, Terrible, Thanks for Asking, which focuses on grief and the tough stuff in life.

They were also joined by Cara Mearns-Thompson, a licensed independent clinical social worker and co-owner of Grief Care Counseling, a center that focuses on grief in children, teens and adults. She has worked with children and families for over 12 years.
