Disenfranchised Grief: A grief not recognized by others.
The loss of a friend, co-worker, or neighbor can be difficult, especially for those who have come to rely on someone over a lifetime. This experience becomes uniquely difficult with the loss of a non-family member because others may not fully appreciate the impact of the loss.
Begin With the End in Mind is a three-part series that starts in January of 2018, with the first program topic as disenfranchised grief.
