The Shadow Pandemic - Self Study

With astonishing rapidity, the global pandemic of COVID-19 brought with it the threat of death as it simultaneously assaulted a world of once familiar routines, relationships, and resources that previously conferred a sense of security and meaning. In this webinar, Dr. Neimeyer and Dr. Lee present recently validated screening tools for both debilitating anxiety as the contagion spread and the complicated bereavement it left in its shadow. Using the clinical outcomes predicted by both measures, the presenters 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.
