In this episode, Jill Johnson Young teaches about solution-focused grief and loss, helping us to normalize the dying process. Although grieving can feel like a dark tunnel with no end, with the right resources, it can be a time for immense growth, to work on ourselves and make peace with death.

Barb and Jill explore how we can identify grief and help ourselves (or others) through the process. They encourage us to take back our power rather than letting others tell us how we “should” grieve, allowing us to honor their memory as we enter a new chapter of our life (whatever that may look like.)

After a long career in this field, including ten years as a hospice social worker and ten plus years in private practice, Jill is determined to help us understand dying, death, grief and dementia.
