Waiting for the Other Shoe: Anticipatory Grief in Young Adults

Grief starts at the diagnosis: Grief over having to choose living life or tending to the dying. Grief

over a shattered worldview of what we thought we knew. Aspects of anticipatory grief can pile

up and pull us in so many different ways throughout our daily lives.

Join us as we dive into the idea of anticipatory grief as a form of disenfranchised grief in our

society, and the effects it can have on helping to shape young adults. This often underserved

population is faced with a variety of challenges on how they learn to live and cope throughout

their journey with anticipatory grief and beyond. We can help them create a full experience,

while waiting for the other shoe.

2. Examine the challenges individuals may be faced with when in the midst of their

anticipatory grief journey.
