The Mythical Pursuit of “Closure”

Jennifer A. McBride VP- Director of Grief Support & Community Education

“Closure” around our grief at the death of someone loved is a commonly held myth in our society that must be talked about.

Nancy Berns, sociologist at Drake University, does an excellent job in this 17 minute video of a talk she gave discussing this powerful issue.

We grieve because we have loved and grief is not something we “get over” after a period of time, just as we don’t “get over” the love we have for this person.

Rather we learn how to live with our loss, embracing the wide range of emotions that arise.

Please take the time to watch Nancy’s talk and share it with others! >>View Video
