Coping with COVID-Related Staff Grief and Loss Webinar
October 7, 2020
3:00 pm ET

The pandemic poses new threats to our residents, as well as to our friends, community members, relatives, colleagues and ourselves. When leaders promote a work culture that recognizes loss and supports expression of grief, then all staff members cope better and are more resilient in the long-term. This webinar will define grief, including the normal course of bereavement, and its positive and negative impacts. The range of staff Covid-related losses, from the loss of a sense of physical and psychological safety to death, will be reviewed. An outline of five means for individuals to cope with grief and facilitate its normal resolution will be shared. A three-part model for organizations to support grieving staff members and increase group cohesion and resilience will be described.
