An interview with Judith Burdick and Elizabeth Guz by Michigan Radio.

Listen:

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.

Transforming Loss: A Documentary

This inspirational documentary examines and demonstrates the many positive ways people cope with tragic loss through death.

“Transforming Loss” follows six families through the grief process. Incredibly, these individuals have not only survived their profound losses, but have become more than who they were before.

We learn that personal loss actually fuels a fresh energy, which feeds the broken parts. As we heal, a deep desire emerges to help others experiencing similar loss—to be the inspiration and the example of one who has survived and transformed through perseverance and faith.

Judith Burdick’s goal, as a documentary filmmaker is to provide an intimate window into their heartfelt loss, grief and healing journey. Viewers feel their heart-wrenching loss and cheer for these incredible, everyday people who have found their way back.

“Rather than buckling beneath the weight of the loss of my young husband, I allowed it to empower me as a person and then as a healer. This film examines and demonstrates the many positive ways people cope with tragic loss through death. These individuals have not only survived their profound losses, but have become more than who they were before. As a part of the healing journey, they have all chosen to help others. This is the gift and the hope depicted in the larger story.” – Judith R. Burdick
