Living with grief: Part 2 - How to cope. Clinical Psychologist James Brown

In the second part of this 2 part series on living with grief, Alex shares his own very personal story about his relationship with grief and talks to Clinical Psychologist and lecturer at the University of Southern Queensland James Brown.

In our many conversations with dads since starting Being Dad, we have been struck by how many fathers have reached out to us to talk about their experience of the loss of a loved one. What we realised pretty quickly is that, with very few exceptions, men tend not to look for help when dealing with grief. They literally bottle it up and carry on. This is not sustainable. Alex talks to James about why this is and what men can do to manage living with grief.
