The Leftover Pieces; Suicide Loss Conversations
Life After Suicide Loss; Will Our 'Old Self" Ever Be Relevant Again?
Show Notes

Today I go "down the rabbit hole" to discuss a touchy subject ... or at least a difficult and complicated one. But this is a difficult and complicated journey, isn't it? Today I discuss my thoughts on if our "before" - our old life and self - will ever be relevant again. 
You will hear me discuss:

  • The first three years - survival, hope and healing.
  • Grief Vs Complicated (or Unresolved) Grief
  • Grieving Vs Trauma - yes, they are different.
  • and more ...

And speaking of this loss and the trauma associated with it... do you need to start your trauma healing journey? I have created a good place to start ...FIND my "Growth in Grief; Healing our Mind, Body & Spirit" COURSE INFO HERE
