Grief Out Loud Podcast: Ep. 141, You Can't Give From Empty: Grief Professionals and COVID-19 with Megan Devine
This Grief Out Loud podcast episode from The Dougy Center features a talk with Megan Devine
of Refuge In Grief about what it's like to be a support person in the midst of a global crisis that is
affecting us all. They discuss what's coming up around grief and self-care for Megan, the people she
supports, and her colleagues in the grief world.
All this COVID-19 stuff may be impacting how your grief feels and looks. Are you finding it harder to concentrate, feeling more physical symptoms, feeling anxious or extra stressed, feeling hopeless, depressed, angry or shocked?
These are all totally normal responses in grief and in reaction to a global health crisis like we are experiencing.
I encourage you to really take it easy on yourself and allow all the feelings to arise, sit with them, breathe
and let them flow through you without judgement.
You can do this. You are doing this. We can do this together. We will get to the other side.
