One of the things worrying many of us during this pandemic, is the impact necessary restrictions have on our ability to mourn using the traditional rituals, and how that in turn impacts the grieving process.

Chartered Clinical Psychologist, Dr. Ursula Bates worked for many years as the Head of Psychology Services at Our Lady's Hospice and Care Services and through that work has a unique insight into dying, death and the grieving of a loved one.

In this episode of YouOK? Ursula talks about the role rituals play in helping us to process our grief, what alternative options might be available for us at the moment and how the wider community can continue to support people in their grief, despite restrictions.
