NEW!The COVID-19 Pandemic, Trauma, and Grief
2 Hours, 2 CE Credits
As a mental health professional, it's very likely that your clients are facing increased challenges to their emotional wellbeing as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to reverberate worldwide.
In addition to the many tragedies and disruptions, the methods by which we manage grief and loss have been upended as well. Human cultures have deeply ingrained traditions of honoring losses with family, friends, and communities, but in the era of social distancing, the long-established means by which we initiate and move through the grieving process have been changed or made impossible.
This professional training discusses normative and complicated grief, trauma, attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology, and clinical tools to facilitate the grieving process and resolve trauma, specifically in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
