This week on It’s OK that You’re Not OK:
Is it time to retire the stages of grief? (Spoiler: yes)
Everybody knows the stages of grief. Even if you didn’t go to grad school, I bet you can rattle them off. Thing is – those stages don’t help anyone: not the pros trying to support patients or clients, not the person trying to survive an impossible situation.
Tune in for the inside scoop on the stages of grief and what we should be doing instead, with a special shout-out to the tv shows getting grief right.
In this episode we cover:
- Where the stages of grief came from, and why their creator was Less Than Pleased with what happened next
- Whether an “innocent” mention of the stages of grief really matters in a movie or tv show (shout out to Netflix: HMU!)
- What to do if your boss asks you to support your co-workers through a death in the company
- And much more, because I have a lot to say on these stages, apparently
We’re re-releasing some of our favorite episodes from the first 3 seasons.
