The holidays are stressful. Dealing with the loss of a loved one is stressful. And when they happen together, it can be overwhelming. Today on Modern Love we’re going to talk about dealing with loss during the holidays, and why this can be such a challenging time for anyone dealing with loss. Joining me today is my holiday guest, New York State licensed clinical psychologist Dr. Jill Kristal, who has over 2 decades of experience working with children and adults. We will be exploring some of the conventional wisdom (as well as some non-conventional wisdom) with regard to dealing with loss. This can be a painful time for anyone but even more so when you’re thinking about a loved one who is no longer here.
