Being left behind by a parent can be a traumatic experience that leaves the child with unanswered questions. Daily, people leave relationships, friendships, and various situations; some leave by choice, abandonment, or even death. This has a significant impact on those left behind, and they may never fully process what happened. How do you keep going and journey towards healing when you are left behind?
In this episode of Hey, I’m listening, Dr. Joan speaks with Jeanine Branch-Capron about her life experience with abandonment, loss, death, and her healing journey.
