Dysfunctional Pandemic Grief (DPG): A Dysfunctional Approach to Understanding Grief During the COVID-19 Pandemic

presented by Donna L. Schuurman, EdD, FT
July 7, 2022

10 a.m. - 11:30 a.m., PDT
Cost: $65/person
Registration closes at 10 a.m., PDT, July 6, 2022

A movement to label people who are grieving the death of someone from Covid-19 has spread from the U.S. into numerous countries, based on a faulty and error-riddled “Study” published in Death Studies Journal. A DPG 5-question Screening Tool bypasses both trauma-informed and grief-informed principles, ignoring the social and cultural aspects imposed and exposed by pandemic restrictions. Join this webinar to learn more.

Inclusivity, Intersectionality, and Grief
presented by Cristina Chipriano, L.C.S.W.
September 22, 2022
10 a.m. - 11:30 a.m., PDT
Cost: $65/person
Registration closes 10 a.m., PDT, September 21, 2022

Grief is contextual — it is influenced and impacted by personal and social factors. Identity is multifaceted and this intersectionality can create complex encounters or paradoxical experiences for people when they are grieving. Join us in this webinar where we will explore inclusive practices to support people who are grieving and the multifaceted layers that can impact grief.

Becoming Grief-Informed: Foundations of Grief Education
presented by Monique B. Mitchell, PhD, FT
October 27, 2022
10 a.m. - 11:30 a.m., PDT
Cost: $65/person
Registration closes 10 a.m., PDT, October 26, 2022

Being grief-informed sets the foundation for understanding and responding to the needs of people who are grieving the death of someone in their lives. Misassumptions lead to misunderstanding and mistreatment. Tune in for more information on this important topic, including the ten core principles of grief-informed practice.
