In this episode we meet Dr. Jillian Blueford of the University of Denver and Dr. Nancy Thacker of Auburn University, scholars and practitioners of grief counseling. We discuss and debunk the stages of grief as we currently understand them. We explore theories of grief and the complex and profound process of experiencing and healing from loss.
