Collectively, these methods are known as Energy Psychology.

Holidays can be a time of great joy or sorrow. The media tells us it’s a time to spend with family and loved ones. When you’ve lost a loved one on or close to a holiday, you’ve got a sad reminder each year of that event. For some, the issue might not be the death of a loved one but a traumatic experience that occurred on a holiday such as a fire, or tragic accident on July 4th.

How do we cope with those losses? How do we express our grief so that others will respect our wishes for celebrating the holiday or not?
