Conversation with a Grief Counselor

On Friday, April 11, 2014, I hosted a free conference call for people about ways to deal with grief. A grief counselor, Uma Girish, joined me. We discussed how to counsel my main character, Heath, in my book Finding Heath Young Lighthouse Keeper. Though Heath is a fictional character, he witnesses the death of his parents in the book. As the lone survivor, he struggles with questions about faith, guilt, and identity.

These are feelings many experience since death is a part of everyone’s life. Uma answers questions I pose about Heath, and how to help him cope with all of his grief and new living conditions, and how his guilt impacts other aspects of his life.

Listen to our recorded conversation below. If you,or someone you know can benefit from this advice and possibly more, please leave a comment below. Thank you for your visit!
