This cross-listed episode with my other podcast Things You Learn in Therapy is so powerful I just needed to share it to both podcasts!
The grief of losing a loved one can be overwhelming. And to lose a child...unfathomably difficult. Though most of us haven't experienced such a tragic loss, we can learn from the many things that today's guest, Michelle Benyo, shares with us. Grab a box of tissues and your journal. We've all experienced grief in the last two years. It's with a grateful heart and open mind that I share with you this awe-inspiring episode of #thingsyoulearnintherapy.
Michele Benyo is a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist®, a parent coach, and the founder of Good Grief Parenting. After her 6-year-old son died of cancer, her 3-year-old daughter said, “Mommy, half of me is gone.” This heartbreaking statement focused Michele’s career as an early childhood parenting specialist on the impact of grief on young children, particularly after child loss. Michele equips parents and other caring adults to recognize young children’s grief and to provide the support children need to cope well with any loss. The desire of Michele’s heart is to see families live forward after loss toward a future bright with possibilities and even joy.
