Literary Thursdays: The Myth of Closure: Ambiguous Loss in a Time of Pandemic and Change
Date: January 6, 2022
Time: 4 - 6 pm (EST)
Sponsored By: Queens Public Library, New York City
Description: The COVID-19 pandemic has left many of us haunted by feelings of anxiety, despair, and even anger. In her latest book, pioneering therapist Pauline Boss identifies these vague feelings of distress as caused by ambiguous loss, losses that remain unclear and hard to pin down, and make it difficult to have closure. This discussion will cover strategies for coping, acknowledgment of our resilience as we express a normal grief, and how look to the future with hope and possibility.
