New documentary shows how Michigan families cope with loss
Suffering loss and going through grief is a part of the human experience. There's not one of us who will skate through life without having to cope with losing someone close to us.
But sometimes that loss is sudden and horrifying. How can someone possibly climb back out of that pit of grief?
That's the question addressed in a new documentary called "Transforming Loss." In it, we meet six Michigan families who have managed to triumph, transform, and grow, despite indescribable heartbreak. And they have lessons for each of us.
The filmmaker and licensed psychotherapist Judith Burdick joined us in the studio.
Also in the studio was Elizabeth Guz, one of the people who shared her story of loss and transformation, a story that began when her teenage son committed suicide. Today she volunteers for the Heinz Prechter Bipolar Research Project at the University of Michigan Depression Center.
