How to deal with grief and loss, with Dr. Chloe Paidoussis-Mitchell | Guardian Master Classes


If you’ve lost a loved one or know someone who has, you’ll probably know there’s no such thing as grief. It can be incredibly isolating, disorienting, painful, and long-lasting. It can be all of these, or none. Grieving is a personal experience, and we don’t share the same journey.

In this masterclass with a licensed counseling psychologist Dr Chloe Paidoussis-Mitchell, you will first learn what grief is, then how to move through the experience for healing and acceptance. Chloé will offer you a framework and a safe space to process and better understand grief, which will help you manage your own or support a loved one.

You’ll discover why relying on ‘coping mechanisms’ may not be the healthiest way, how emotional repression can ‘escape’ and why there is no ‘repair’ sorrow, nor shortcut. Instead, you’ll discover a deeply compassionate guide, with tools and resources you can turn to whenever you need them.
