Disenfranchised grief is the subject of this month’s NFDA podcast. Disenfranchised grief is grief not openly acknowledged, validated or publicly observed. Our guest is Sara E. Murphy, Ph.D., a faculty member at the University of Rhode Island in the Honors Program and Department of Gender and Women's Studies and an expert on death, dying and bereavement. Host Gabe Schauf will dive into the causes, effects and how funeral professionals can best serve clients struggling with it.
