Where's the Grief?

A podcast focused on grief and loss hosted by Jordon Ferber

On the whole, many cultures do not teach us how to effectively deal with the feelings that come up when a loved one dies. 

The goal of this podcast is to acknowledge the reality of intense grief , which can be a very isolating experience, and normalize the conversation about it that is very often difficult to have with friends and even family.

 

Jordon Ferber, a bereaved sibling himself, gives people who have experienced intense loss permission to talk about it and exemplify the possibility of  making it through the darkest periods of grief to a life full of hope and happiness.

In this episode, Jordon sits down with one of his good friends from college, Kendra, who lost her brother Scott to suicide nearly 6 years ago, while Kendra herself was 7 months pregnant with her second child.

We talk about the difficulty of overcoming the stigma in talking about suicide and mental health, and the importance of understanding that depression is a disease that we ought to stop sweeping under the rug.

We also talk about the importance of gratitude, and how appreciating what we have in front of us can help gain a perspective on what we've been through.

Kendra hosts a yearly Fundraiser called "Stand Up for Scott" to raise money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and the Ali Forney Center.

    Thank you both for your conversation. It opened up my mind and heart. My brother Mitchell died on April 28, 2016
    And our father Milton just died on January 7, 2018.
    Now I have time to grieve since our father had Dimentia and my brother? Torment, Shame, stigma, loneliness.
    Your conversation inspired me.

    My career involves Body- centered trauma Healing.
    Now.. I want to honor my brother and his poetry.
    He left much that can serve other people who are struggling with Addiction.

    Touching grief and loss.
    Talking to my brother each day!

    Love,
    Laurie
