Grief, Loss, and Resilience in a Pandemic World

Amy DeGurian, MSW
Lecturer and Field Education Coordinator
School of Social Work
University of Pittsburgh

Melissa M. Kelley, PhD
Associate Professor of Pastoral Care and Counseling
Boston College School of Theology and Ministry

Abstract:  So many losses mark this pandemic—from lives to social connections to jobs to the stories we live by and our sense of safety. The footprint of grief will long remain after the medical virus has abated. How do we accompany each other and help the healing process?

This three-part interactive series on grief will consider what it is (and isn’t), the impact it has on our sense of meaning, and how to move forward with our eyes open and hopeful. The series is appropriate for all those who interact with the grieving, including healthcare workers; chaplains; those in hospice, palliative care, or gerontology; informal caregivers; and anyone who would benefit from supporting others dealing with loss. 

Continuing education information: 3.0 CEs for licensed social workers, mental health therapists, marriage and family counselors are available for $10 during registration checkout. 0.3 CEUs for pastors, chaplains, lay ministers, and laity are available for free upon request to ConEd@pts.edu.

Register here. Direct questions to ConEd@pts.edu or call 412-924-1345.

Co-sponsored by the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary
