Coping with Grief in Difficult Situations

Grief and sorrow are sadly a part of life, sometimes we might be prepared for it, and sometimes we won’t.

How can we deal with these hard feelings while still moving forward?

Listening to your grief just like you listen to the rest of your emotions is a great start for the process of getting better at managing this hard feeling, letting it express itself and letting it go out of your body is the healthiest way of doing it.

Many people when dealing with grief will want to try to lock it away on the deepest parts of themselves, but this action could actually make the emotional pain worst.

Our emotions are there for a reason, and we must listen to them to maintain our emotional health at a peaking point.

In this episode, Dr. Carmen talks with Dr. Liz Caine, who will tell us a bit about how we can manage our grief, especially in times like these when our emotions are heightened.

Who’s our guest?Dr. Liz A. Caine (she/her) is a licensed psychologist in Northern California. In her psychotherapeutic work, she is drawn to holding space for people experiencing grief and loss, terminal and chronic illness, and the LGBTQ+ community.

Her approach is informed by social justice, anti-oppression, and decolonizing work. She received a Master’s degree in socially Engaged Buddhism from Naropa University in 2006 where she studied global, spiritual models of social justice movements, Buddhism, meditation, and contemplative psychotherapy.

Completing a doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology in 2014, she added existential-humanism, spirituality, and clinical psychology.

She is trained in focusing-oriented psychotherapy, contemplative psychotherapy, mindfulness-based interventions, acceptance and commitment therapy, psychodynamics, and motivational interviewing.
