Christmas can be a difficult time for anyone who has experienced loss in the past, and feelings of grief can be greatly amplified in these busy few weeks. In Episode One of Grief Encounters, Sasha & Venetia meet Dr Colman Noctor an Adolescent Psychotherapist with St Patrick's Mental Health Services in Dublin.
Christmas is a time built on traditions for many people, and Colman discusses the positives and negatives of building new traditions after a loss, in particular for families. He also gives an insight into how children process information differently to adults, and how that can make the grieving process an often strange and difficult one for a child to deal with.
