Episode 31: Coping with grief and loss during a Pandemic


We are all feeling the loss brought on by the pandemic; missed birthdays, weddings and funerals, as well as all the everyday losses—meeting a friend for coffee, going to the gym, enjoying a concert. This sense of loss is known as ‘disenfranchised grief’ and sadly people often feel guilty about the anxiety, anger and even depression it produces, because it’s not considered grief in the true sense of the word. In this episode, Peta acknowledges such feelings are real and while it’s important to grieve and feel sad about how life has changed, it’s also vitally important to implement coping strategies that will help us forward define our ‘new normal’.
