Grief is the problem. Grieving is the solution. In this presentation, Peg Armstrong shares a very real and honest look at the grieving process and how some cultures are far more comfortable understanding and working through their grief than others. Shock, anger, tears, depression – these are normal responses to pain and loss. Until we explore, talk about and really feel our pain, healing will be out of reach.
