Using the clinical outcomes predicted by both measures, the presenters will suggest evidence-informed interventions for assisting clients struggling with coronavirus anxiety and dysfunctional levels of pandemic grief, as well as reiterate the importance of reaffirming or reconstructing a world of meaning as a major mediator of adaptive functioning underscore the relevance of grief counseling strategies that assist clients in this effort.
