Death, Dying and Grief
Hello, I am a young therapist in Philadelphia, PA. I am learning more about medical family therapy and this organization. I am concerned about the fact that the topic of death and grief is barely mentioned in MedFT and collaborative approaches. I see a lot of focus on health and the impact of disease, but healthy grieving is certainly part of it.
It affects providers, families and obviously patients living chronic illness. How come this group is not talking about it? I see a few readings about resilience, which is in someways problematic because ti feels like a burden on providers, as opposed to a collective goal.
I am curious to hear more seasoned clinicians' thoughts on this.
