As an extension to Part 1, we will focus on ways to communicate empathy and support students’ grief journey inaction. We will identify common barriers to providers communicating empathy to those who are grieving, invite all to reflect on our own barriers, and discuss possible ways to overcome those barriers. Then, we will introduce therapeutic activities that support students in establishing a sense of safety, dealing with emotions, making sense of the loss, and living with the loss beyond the loss, including over telehealth. Two clinicians from Hathaway Sycamores will share their clinical experiences and how they worked through their own barriers in supporting students’ grief journey.
