The Masculine Side of Grief


Understanding the Unique Needs and Expressions of Masculine Grief

Grief can be tough.  We live in a culture that disdains grief and sadness.  But the fact is we all grieve.  Right now we’re either grieving a loss or know someone who is.  Sadly, the grief dynamic for individuals within most families is one of isolation, denial and silence.  This isn’t surprising, it is difficult and awkward to talk about death.  This series explores these universal subjects with sensitivity and practical support.  Tom Golden brings a lifetime of experience with an emphasis on the differences between how men and women approach loss and bereavement.  Regardless of age or gender, these lessons offer inspiring stories and easy-to-understand skills for both caregivers and people in grief.  You will be amazed at the wisdom that can be learned from other cultures and the latest scientific research that as well.
