Show Notes

This week we are joined by Lisa Millar, ABC News Breakfast Host!

Together we discuss the transformative power of storytelling and empathy in coping with grief and loss. Lisa, a journalist and novelist, highlighted the importance of bringing people's stories to life to give them a voice, emphasising the need to validate each person's unique coping mechanisms without imposing external judgments.

We explore a range of topics, including grief and loss, the value of animals such as dogs for people in rural areas and the benefits of strong communities.  Furthermore, Lisa shares her experiences of becoming a novelist, covering traumatic events throughout her career and what she has found effective in coping with grief and loss.
