About the Webinar Course

This webinar course has been previously recorded.  

Clinicians working across all healthcare settings recognize the impact of personal and professional losses due to COVID-19. A major emphasis of this webinar course is to provide an understanding of the impact of loss, grief, and bereavement on the clinician. Recognizing grief reactions in clinicians after a patient dies by the coronavirus is explored. This webinar provides clinicians the insight they need to understand their own Palette of Grief®, which focuses on their emotional, cognitive, behavioral, physical, and spiritual reactions and will also prepare clinicians to identify characteristics that complicate their own grief process. Whether the learner is a bereaved clinician or a supervisor who wants to help their team, they will gain insight into coping with COVID-19 related loss, posttraumatic growth, and meaning making. The webinar also describes how clinicians can manage their grief by identifying their strengths and building their personal resilience. 

Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of this webinar course, the learner will be able to:
  • Describe the components of the Palette of Grief.
  • Apply the Palette of Grief to your personal and professional self.
  • Identify steps to manage grief by identifying personal strengths and building on your own  personal resilience.
