Grief as a Hole in the Heart

Grief as a Hole in the Heart | Grief & Bereavement Counseling | Scoop.it
Today, I was speaking with a friend/colleague who has been a long time addictions specialist, thanatologist and grief counselor. Dr. Yvonne Kaye is an outspoken advocate for those who are living with loss. One of her specialities is working with bereaved parents, regardless of the age of the child or the reason for their death. She has been in the trenches with them for decades and never ceases to be amazed by their resilience in the face of what is considered to be "out of the natural order of things." Compassionate Friends is one of the organizations with which she is involved and to which she refers family members and friends of those suffering such a loss. It was created 40 years ago as a result of a chaplain in England feeling helpless to assist two families in grieving the deaths of their children. He recognized the power of solidarity shared between those who had walked the path. She shared a tidbit of wisdom from a bereaved parent with whom she had worked. The woman told her
