This week’s episode contains depictions of violence and loss, including conversation around crime scene cleanup. Listener discretion is advised.
Welcome back to Restorative Grief with Mandy Capehart. You are listening to episode 43, titled, “Surviving Violent Loss with Dr. Jan Canty.” Dr. Canty is a psychologist of nearly 40 years. In 1985, her spouse was murdered. Though she did not speak of it for years, she now makes it her life mission to help other so-called “homicide survivors” and their close friends who don’t know how to help. She has a podcast entitled “Domino Effect of Murder”, wrote the book, “A Life Divided” and speaks internationally. She is currently working on a second book “Survival Guide for Coping with the Homicide of your Loved One.” As mentioned, this conversation is heavy, although rich with compassion and insight on how survivors of violent loss can find healing.
Thank you for listening to episode 43 of Restorative Grief. Dr. Canty’s upcoming book is going to be a brilliant insight and support tool for those in need of advice. As a survivor of violent loss in my own history, I am deeply grateful for the courage of survivors like Jan starting the conversation time and again for the benefit of others.
I’ll say it one last time – this week’s episode included excerpts from one of my favorite conversations for this show. Next week we will release two episodes, but the interview with Josh Scott is available only to premium subscribers. If you wanna hear all the good stuff this compassionate human has to say about loss and faith, then subscribe today for only $4.99/month. Such a small cost for the huge investment in your process of healing, and by supporting this show financially, you are supporting grief literacy and coaching for the listeners who can’t access other resources in their life at this time. So THANK YOU for being a friend of the show. Please take time to leave a five star review on Apple podcasts and give us a little shout on the socials because I love hearing from listeners.
And one last thing. Please remember, the only solution for grief is to do the work of grieving. Thank you for listening. I’ll see you next week.
