Webinar: Supporting providers dealing with loss

Description:

Grief is a natural response to losing someone or something important. Development, culture, family, and other factors strongly influence how people experience, mourn, cope with, and heal from loss.

This webinar will review unique aspects of loss, grief, compassion fatigue, and burnout of behavioral health and health care providers prior to and in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Personal and professional challenges of ambiguous loss and disenfranchised grief – including provider feelings of guilt, lack of reward, loss of control and uncertainty about the future - will be illustrated through case examples. Case examples will also be used to explain how to employ effective supportive interventions to providers and enhance self-care and resiliency.

Skill Level: Intermediate

Learning Objectives:

  • Evaluate the unique aspects of loss, grief, compassion fatigue, and burnout experienced by providers prior to and during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Examine personal and professional challenges of cumulative grief, anticipatory grief, ambiguous loss and disenfranchised grief present in provider loss.
  • Employ specific effective interventions to support providers dealing with loss, grief and burnout and enhance self-care.
