Session 102: Why Am I Grieving Someone I Didn’t Know?

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a Licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves.

In this week’s episode I’m sharing my thoughts about the intense level of grief many seem to be experiencing following the death of Nipsey Hussle and the factors that may lead us to grieve someone even though we didn’t personally know them. I also answered listener questions about dealing with a breakup when kids are involved and how to get experience as a therapist when you’ve been out of the field for a while.
