1. 07: Loss, Trauma, and Grief Jane Leder 25:40

Edy Nathan is an author, certified sex therapist, blogger, and motivational speaker. Edy shares her experiences with loss and trauma and the healing process—a process that is not about forgetting but about remembering more peacefully. Edy encourages us to face our Grief head-on, to “dance” with it, and to recognize that Grief is not linear; it does not go according to a plan. To acknowledge Grief, Edy says, is to understand what we need and to teach people we love how to help us heal.

Jane Leder Podcaster & Author

I am an award-winning author of books about teen suicide, siblings, and men and women during WWII. My feature articles have appeared in publications from Psychology Today to the Chicago Sun-Times. I enjoy the journey of writing, the process. But as I celebrated my seventy-seventh birthday, I wanted a change of focus and turned my creative energies into launching "Older Women & Friends," a podcast. The challenge has been exhilarating and will certainly help me make it through the dead of winter in the Midwest.
