Plenary: Helping Social Workers to Manage our own Grief and Loss During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Our entire world is in a state of grief and we are uniquely experiencing collective sorrow and complicated grief during this pandemic of COVID-19.  Currently we face fear for our health and the health of our loved ones, the physical distancing, the upheaval of our routines, our financial security, and changes in every aspect of our lives. For many there is the added burden of the physical loss of loved ones in the midst of this isolation. We are challenged in attending to our clients’ grief and as social workers we too are experiencing grief and loss of friends, family, colleagues, clients, and our world as we knew it.  NASW is committed to supporting our members and the social work profession during this challenging period in our history. This webinar is intended to support social workers to address our own grief and loss, to strengthen our self-care practices, and to promote our resilience in these complex times. (Social Work CE)
