We’ve been looking around these past couple years, wondering what grief is in America. Today we start at the beginning and we have some BIG QUESTIONS. What is grief? What is the particularly American approach to grief and grieving — or not grieving as it were? Will we be okay?! We are joined by two of the world’s leading grief experts. George Bonanno and Natalia Skritskaya are psychologists who are researchers on grief, trauma, and loss to define grief and loss and their many manifestations. We go deep on the incredible resilience of human beings, the throughlines of grief experiences and the impact of NOT addressing it, particularly in a post-Covid age — and how the truth about grief may look completely different from what we think it to be. You can find more info and resources at GriefCollected.comAbout The GuestsDr. George Bonanno is a Professor of Clinical Psychology and Chair of the Department of Counseling and Clinical Psychology at Columbia University's Teachers College. He is the head of the Loss, Trauma, and Emotion Lab at Columbia University. For the past 25 years, he has pioneered research in the nature of resilience in contexts of loss and trauma. His books include “The End of Trauma: How the new science of resilience is changing how we think about PTSD. And the The Other Side of Sadness”: What the New Science of Bereavement Tells Us About Life After Loss. You can find him on Twitter @giorgiobee. Dr. Natalia Skritskaya is a researcher at the Center for Complicated Grief, Columbia University and clinical psychologist in private practice. Her background is in cognitive-behavioral therapy for anxiety disorders with an interest in mind-body connection.

We’re back!!! Welcome to a new series about grieving and life from The Mash-Up Americans. Grief, Collected is where we explore how grief moves through our bodies, our families, and our communities — and why we need to feel it all in order to transform our future. Launching November 15 — with new episodes every Tuesday and new meditations every Friday. Grief, like joy, is one of our human conditions. Yet it is the one we, as Americans, are the least willing to confront, even as it becomes more and more essential to do so. We prize pushing forward, but maybe it’s time to pause. As we emerge from the catastrophic losses of the pandemic — and wrestle with the regular traumas of modern life — how do we heal ourselves to plant seeds for our future? What wisdom can we call upon to create hope for a more introspective, joyful, and honest culture? We’re talking to leading psychologists, researchers, musicians, and authors, including George Bonnano, Natalia Skritskaya, Daniela Gesundheit, Alexander Chee, Linda Thai, Dorothy Holinger, Wendy Macnaughton, Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, and adrienne maree brown.  bit.ly/meet-grief-collectedCredits:Grief, Collected is a production of The Mash-Up Americans.
