       Grief, Loss, and COVID-19
        Oct. 7th 9:00 – 11:30am via ZOOM


  Many of the emotions and behaviors being exhibited by people during the COVID-19 pandemic and its subsequent restrictions have their roots in grief.  And what may be observed as anger, sadness or withdrawal, may be a person’s expression of grief over loss of life as they knew it.
  This workshop will assist helping professionals to explore grief as a process as well as strategies for a healthy journey through the emotional impacts of COVID-19.

 Objectives:
  •  - Increase your understanding of grief as a process through which people move during times of crisis or loss
  •  - Expand intervention skills to include recognizing signs of grief
  •  - Learn strategies to help individuals move through the current challenging times.
  •  - Gain an overview of youth grief and the resources available to help caregivers provide appropriate support
