This is the 1-hour didactic presentation. A recording will be available for registrants after the session.
Overview: The pandemic has presented everyone with an unprecedented and traumatic experience of loss and its inherent grief. This has occurred not only with the deaths of those we knew or cared for, but the sheer loss of control over the situation, and the loss of the ability to live our lives and provide care the way we were used to.
• Examine the many different types of grief, thereby expanding grief literacy for the participants
• Recognize the range of individual responses to loss and grief, with time to acknowledge and reflect on one’s own personal experiences of loss and grief during this time of pandemic
• Identify strategies which may be helpful in acknowledging and process grief personally and in the workplace
