In January, we begin a New Year and many of us have New Year’s resolutions such as losing weight, getting more exercise or doing something positive to improve our lives such as being more understanding towards our loved ones. Former Vice President Joe Biden recently came out with a memoir detailing events in his life and what he learned from the tragedies.

After a spouse’s suicide surviving parents may look into the rooms of their home and see remnants of a family life that is upside down. As a family begins to acclimate to the disorder posed by the beginning of the grief journey, it might be useful to realize that a world where meaningful structure has been disabled by a traumatic loss adds an element of strangeness in familiar spaces.

Loss and Learning
Wednesday, July 12, 2017 by Cynthia Waderlow MSE, LCSW
After a sudden loss like suicide, families are reeling. Parents may feel like they have lost energy and find that hopeless feelings, apathy or frustration are affecting their interactions with children and teens. Children, in response, may be furtive and watchful of your tears and despair at home, while looking for normalcy in school or with friends outside the home.

The great American holiday is celebrated on the 4th of July. This is a day when we commemorate the event when our Founding Leaders fought to throw off the shackles of an oppressive regime. These people fought and many of them died in order to create a more humane environment. While our country is not perfect it certainly enables all of us to live free and have many opportunities to live out our dreams and pursue our goals. For this we give thanks that out Founding Leaders had the courage and the foresight to follow their dreams and aspirations. They created an environment and produced a road map that we follow to this day. Our country has gotten better over the centuries as our leaders have perfected and refined the original documents that gave our country its beginning. Our country has evolved since the first shots were fired and the shackles were thrown off.
