E62: Giving Men Permission to Grieve with Herb Knoll – Bereavement Cruise 2019

Herb Knoll walked away from his life after his wife died of pancreatic cancer. In finding little to no support for widowers in books and grief groups, he forged his own path, spending nine years interviewing widowers and experts. The result of his research is his book, The Widower’s Journey. This week, we’re talking about anticipatory grief and how a number of caregivers fall ill during the caregiving process, what it’s like to have losses occur on holidays and birthdays, and what men need in order to grieve. Also this week, I’m talking about serving others in the midst of heartache.
