Workshop Description:

The COVID-19 pandemic has become a top leading cause of death worldwide. The worldwide death toll currently exceeds 4 million people worldwide. The psychological burden of the COVID-19 pandemic is fraught with grief and traumatic loss that encompasses more than COVID-related patient death. Physical distancing and other COVID-19 protocols have engendered ambiguous losses including the absence of traditional/cultural rituals in the grieving process, abrupt separation from friends and loved ones, job and financial loss, loss of child care, the absence of significant changes in family roles and division of labor cause significant relationship strain, hamper relationship intimacy, and shift identity. Prolonged stress is likely to lead to long-term physical health and psychological consequences. The prolonged nature of these changes and losses place clients at risk for complex bereavement disorder. Dr. Bethea-Walsh will discuss use therapeutic tools to support clients to manage suffering and to make meaning in the mourning process.
