In today's episode of the Stable Moments podcast, host Rebecca Britt and I share an intimate conversation about "ambiguous loss," which is a loss without clear boundaries, and how it impacts families. We also have an eye-opening conversation about the role grief plays in healing from trauma, and the reasons why we often skip over this critical experience. We even dive into the importance of creating a historical narrative of a child's life with lifebooks, and how it can aid the healing process.
One of my favorite lifebooks for foster families is, Love You From Right Here, by Jamie Sandefer. You can find a link to it HERE.
