Tabasom Eblaghie, M.A. ’06, a graduate of the Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology program in Vancouver, was featured on CBC News following the plane crash in Iran that killed all 176 people on board. Eblaghie offered words of comfort and wisdom to the individuals and the communities grieving the loss of loved ones, as well as how we can assist those who are mourning.

“When grief comes into your life, it can isolate you,” Eblaghie said. “So when you see something like this, where it’s communal grieving, where Canadians are standing behind every single individual who has suffered this loss, this communal grief has been crucial to bringing the community together.”
