“Alyssa’s husband has passed away. As a result of this tragedy, she is suffering from acute social anxiety. She stays in her house all day by herself. The only place she went after her husband’s death was his funeral. Months later, shockingly, you see her at the grocery store. Which approach is the best way to support Alyssa and why?” Sympathy is the best way to support Alyssa. This is the best way due to not fully understanding what it is like to lose a spouse. It is very hard to comfort someone when you do not really understand how they are personally feeling about their own situation. It is difficult to explain to someone how you are feeling about your situation let alone for them to actually understand unless they lost their spouse as well. Even if they have lost their own spouse not everyone’s experience in grieving is the same. It is easy for one to say I am so very sorry for your loss and then offer to assist you in any way you may need. When the one thing the person needs when they have lost a loved one is just someone to listen to them without judging them or adding their two cents in when it is not needed[ CITATION Ceh19 \l 1033 ].

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
