Seeing Red: The Role of Anger in Grief with Julia Samuel

Though feelings of sadness and loneliness are frequently associated with grief, anger is an incredibly common and often misunderstood emotion.

Experiencing anger following a bereavement can be hard to talk about, leaving you feeling anxious and as though you’re somehow not ‘normal’. Many of us are conditioned to believe that anger is negative, when in fact it can play a very important part in the grieving process.

Join us for this session with one of the UK’s leading psychotherapists, Julia Samuel MBE, as she discusses the role of anger in grief. She explains how anger can be thought of as your brain trying to make sense of what’s happened, as the death of a loved one often needs to be accepted emotionally as well as logically.
