Living with Grief: Trauma and Loss Self Study

Hospice Foundation of America's 2022 Living with Grief® program focuses on the specific issues raised when losses are sudden and traumatic, shattering the bereaved individual’s assumptions that the world is safe, benevolent, or predictable. These deaths can be the result of accidents and disasters; suicides or overdoses; homicide and terrorism; military or service-related deaths; or the unpredictable trajectories of illnesses. Part One of the program explores the factors that complicate grief, and Part Two uses case studies to highlight ways that such losses can be treated. The program concludes with a discussion of vicarious traumatization and strategies for self-care.
