Living with Grief Since COVID-19 Book

The COVID-19 pandemic has successfully shattered the assumptive world -- the view that the world is reasonably safe, benevolent, and predictable. It is that loss of innocence that lies at the heart of our individual and collective trauma. Staggering numbers of non-death and death losses have occurred during the pandemic, which will inevitably lead to a consequent pandemic of complicated grief for survivors of all deaths, whether they be as a result of COVID-19 or not. Going forward, there may be opportunities for posttraumatic growth as a country, as lessons learned throughout the pandemic ultimately improve health and bereavement care, especially through accessible, community-based models of care for populations that have been affected most gravely and who have been historically the most underserved in the United States.
