0 out of 5 based on 0 customer ratings


​The current pandemic is taking a large toll in human lives and many people are deeply affected by these losses. The inability to hold a funeral or any in-person social gathering, makes grieving even more difficult. The sudden and frightening nature of the loss and the fact that we cannot be at the side of a dying loved one is very troubling. The seemingly randomness of who lives and dies can also be disturbing. These and other features of the pandemic can make it more difficult to adapt to the loss and stalls the progress of grief. 

Dr. Shear will share what she has learned from decades of research about grief, adaptation to loss, and what derails this process. She will discuss the unique challenges to adaptation posed by a Covid loss and provide ways to promote adaptation.​
