In this episode…
After the loss of her newborn daughter in 1994, Dr. Joanne Cacciatore devoted her life to studying traumatic grief and conducted a groundbreaking study on mass grief after Sandy Hook.
A research professor at Arizona State University, founder of the MISS Foundation (an international organization for families experiencing the death of a child), and author of the award-winning book, “Bearing the Unbearable: Love, Loss, and the Heartbreaking Path of Grief,” Joanne and Scarlett have an honest conversation about the different kinds of psychological and emotional loss, the effect of loneliness, the importance of compassion, understanding death, how animals and pets are powerful crisis support systems, and the human need for emotional connection.
You’ll also learn how she founded the Selah Carefarm in Arizona for the traumatically bereaved that also houses rescued and abused animals. This podcast will make you think, feel, and understand how you can live a more meaningful life.
