TENDING THE CALL: Supporting Ambiguous Loss in Today’s World- Feb 1, 2021
Aimee Lee Ball is a writer in New York who defines ambiguous loss as, “unfinished business, without closure or understanding.” When we look at the current world situation and apply this definition, one can see why anxiety levels are rising and depression is becoming more prevalent. Every day is filled with new change and no real opportunity for closure and transition. In this time together, participants will unpack this definition in a variety of settings, exploring the impact of ambiguous loss on the human system, spend time in reflection and explore ways to support those experiencing grief in many forms.
