The Tangled Web of Grief: Supporting the Grief of Others and Ourselves

“The Tangled Web of Grief: Supporting the Grief of Others and Ourselves” is a virtual workshop for service providers working with newcomers, immigrants, and refugees. The human experience of grief is always a difficult one, yet additional challenges come with navigating grief in a society that struggles with both emotional expression and mortality. Factors such as direct and indirect exposure to humanitarian crises and living through a pandemic further complicate one's experience of grief. For direct service providers, the tangled web of grief can also entail navigating one's own grief while supporting the profound grief of others. Yet while grief is often a heartbreaking and overwhelming experience, at its core it is a healthy one and finding ways to integrate it into one's life is an important life skill. In this trauma-informed presentation, Andrea Warnick will unpack common barriers to supporting someone who is grieving, while providing practical strategies that can be used to support a healthy grief process in oneself and others.
