Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. Sherry Cormier discuss the following:
- In your own life, you endured a whole series of profound losses in rapid succession. Can you talk about how you survived and moved forward?
- There’s an interesting spiritual dimension to this book. How can considering the spirit and the afterlife help us process and understand loss?
- In terms of your own experience, how did what you went through inform your approach to bereavement counseling?
- You mention something called cancer’s “dirty little secret.” Why is cancer such a harrowing and difficult disease for caregivers to witness?
- What are the most important steps people, who have just lost a loved one to a long illness should take?
