DESCRIPTION:

Grief, loss and bereavement is a common human experience, involving major (often traumatic) life changes. While each loss is unique, there are common coping strategies that aid in negotiating these changes successfully. The COVID-19 pandemic impacts our lives in all spheres, as does grief.
      

This ever-evolving environment poses formidable challenges to our ability to negotiate healthy mourning, which can result in living with unresolved grief long term. This can underlie clinical presentations of depression, insomnia, anxiety, addiction, relationship conflict, and more.
      

From a mental health/hospice chaplain practitioner's perspective, this webinar reviews effective coping with grief, loss and bereavement; identifies the challenges to effective coping our COVID-19 environment poses; anticipates mental health struggles a person with unresolved grief may present; provides ideas for healing; and equips clinicians to aid their clients in developing an effective plan of action for coping with grief, loss and bereavement in the time of COVID-19.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

Completing this webinar will enable the participant to:

• Define strategies of effective coping with grief, loss and bereavement.

• Use clear concepts and language to communicate regarding grief, loss and bereavement.

• Describe clinical mental health presentations that may suggest underlying grief, loss and

bereavement concerns.

• State common challenges to healing grief wounds in the time of COVID-19.

• Brainstorm alternative healing strategies for clients in the changing COVID-19

environment.
