Coming Back: Conversations on life after loss

Jan 22, 2020

How often have you felt HEARD, I mean REALLY HEARD in your grief? Michael Sorensen is the author of I Hear You and we’re talking about the tool of emotional validation i.e. helping people feel heard and understood. This week, we’ll touch on why we’re all starving for validation, how to get friends and family to really hear us instead of trying to fix us, and what to do when it feels like listening to someone else’s story is a burden. Plus, I’m announcing a tiny change to Coming Back’s structure going forward.
