Interviews with Dr. Boss
Duet: Partners In Health & Aging brings back Dr. Pauline Boss and Kathy Ritchie for a virtual family caregiver event to offer help and hope to family caregivers. Dr. Pauline Boss explains why feelings of guilt are likely to be part of a caregiver's normal grief process and offers guideposts for resilience and moving forward despite ambiguous loss. She also shares ideas from her latest book, The Myth of Closure: Ambiguous Loss in a Time of Pandemic and Change (to be released in mid-December 2021 by W. W. Norton). Journalist Kathy Ritchie has reported extensively on multiple aspects of caregiving. Currently, she is an editor for Next Avenue, a digital publication focusing on aging adults 50 plus.
Pauline Boss, PhD, and Arthur Kleinman, M.D. shared their professional expertise as academicians, researchers, clinical practitioners, and authors, as well as relate their personal experiences as caregivers to their beloved spouses. Sponsored by Duet: Partners in Health & Aging, Phoenix, AZ
