When it comes to processing grief, this time of year can be tough.

The holiday season can bring up memories of loved ones we've lost or just trauma we've experienced in general.

So, how do we navigate this grief and hold space for others who might be grieving?

And how does that tie into our relationship with food and our bodies during the holiday season?

Today, I'm bringing Kitty Ferguson-Mappus, MSSW, LMSW on the show to tackle these questions. Kitty is an eating disorder specialist, Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, EMDR Trained Trauma Therapist, Medical Social Worker, and post-Bariatric Patient living a HAES-aligned life.

In this episode, Kitty is opening up about her personal experience with grief and sharing her best tips for supporting someone who is grieving. Plus, she is digging into how diet culture adds another layer of stress this time of year.
