The Journey of Grief
Combining psychological insights with numerous case examples from her decades of work with grieving clients Mary Lamia PhD illustrates how loved ones who have died are always alive within us—regardless of spiritual beliefs. For Lamia, this book has become a deeply personal journey. She lost her mother at the age of 11, her father just 10 years later and, sadly, her husband of 44 years in 2021 just as she was completing this book. Although she agrees that it may be awkward to talk about the loss of a loved one—at least in the culture we live in—she illustrates that "Grief has a rich meaning.” She educates the public about the psychology of human behavior by blogging for Psychology Today, Thrive Global, and Psychwire. For nearly a decade, she hosted a weekly call-in talk show, KidTalk with Dr. Mary, on Radio Disney stations.
