'Resilience strategies in a time of COVID-19: What you are feeling is grief'

Everyone has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Some have been impacted with direct loss—such as the death of a loved one or the loss of a job. However, even those not impacted with direct loss have experienced loss of social connections; attachment to places; and the upheaval of work, healthcare, educational and economic systems. We have all experienced a loss in our ability to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe and a loss of control over many aspects of our lives. Grief is a natural process that most people cope with over time. This brief workshop addresses strategies from the treatment of grief and trauma and simple tools that everyone can use to increase coping and resilience.

Arieahn Matamonasa Bennett, PhD, is an associate professor with DePaul's School of Continuing and Professional Studies. A clinical psychologist, her research interests include cultural diversity issues and the prevention of violence.
