Helping the grieving student: when COVID loss returns to school: This session will provide practical advice on how to support grieving students in any context. A range of topics will be covered, including what not to stay to a grieving student, considerations related to grief across different cultures, identifying and addressing guilt, appropriate academic accommodations, and managing grief triggers. The unique challenges of supporting grieving students during the current pandemic, as well as free resources for addressing these challenges from the Coalition to Support Grieving Students, will be shared. Time will be devoted to questions and discussion.
