Video Clip: Finding Meaning to Cope with Ambiguous Loss

In this clip from her NCFR 2013 annual conference special session — "Myth of Closure: What is Normal Grief after Loss, Clear or Ambiguous?" which we also have posted — Dr. Pauline Boss discusses "finding meaning" as an important step in coping with ambiguous loss.

By telling the story of a teacher in Fukushima who asked her how to help his students deal with their losses when he had so much grief himself, Dr. Boss gives context to the importance of finding meaning and having control over something when so much is uncontrollable.
