Ask the Experts: Clarissa Moll on Caring For Grieving Teenagers

In this special episode of the podcast, Cameron and Anna have the pleasure of speaking with Rooted writer Clarissa Moll, whose new book Beyond the Darkness: A Gentle Guide for Living With Grief and Thriving After Loss is a wonderfully helpful guide for families in grief. After her husband Rob’s death in a hiking accident, Clarissa has parented their four children, shouldering their grief as well as her own.

Topics they discuss include:

– how children grieve differently than adults

– what “re-grieving” looks like

– going back to church after a death or major loss

– how their youth pastor helped her kids

– flourishing after loss
