#24 – Megan Devine – How to best help someone who is grieving and in pain?

Nov 28, 2017, 09:07 AM

Megan Devine is a psychotherapist, grief advocate, and author of the book ‘It’s OK That You’re Not OK.’

For almost 20 years, Megan has dedicated her life to helping people live through things they never thought they’d face. Having witnessed her partner drown almost 9 years ago, today Megan is leading an effort to change the Western culture of grief by proposing new models for grief and by creating an online community and resource that helps people survive some of the hardest experiences of their lives.

This is a conversation about grief, about what to do when you lose someone you love, what to do with grief and this new set of never-experienced emotions, and about how to best help friends and family members who experienced severe loss.
