Tip of the Month
Because of the pandemic, there’s so much that’s out of our control these days. (Not to mention all that’s been lost to us and the subsequent grief.)

That’s why it’s important to put our time and energy into those things that we do have control over.

A few examples: how we unwind at the end of the day; how much news and social media we consume; and what foods we eat.
Podcasts We're Listening To
Divorce on Planet Earth
Kate Scharff and Jane Prelinger, two longtime Washington, D.C. psychotherapists, co-host this podcast devoted to all things related to divorce.

Recent episodes include parenting tips, ways to survive the holidays and whether or not to do a collaborative divorce.

Scharff and Prelinger have been through divorce themselves – as children and as adults, so they speak from real world experience, as well as decades of clinical experience.
Grief Out Loud
Host Jana DeCristofaro mixes personal stories, tips for supporting children, teens and adults, and interviews with bereavement professionals.

Produced by The Dougy Center for Grieving Children & Families in Portland, Oregon, each episode brings a unique perspective on the process of grief.

The podcast touches on the less common themes of grief like guilt, anger and even humor.
