Explore the many ways our grieving process has been influenced by the coronavirus pandemic with Chesapeake Life Center’s next workshop: “Living with Loss: The Impact of COVID-19.” The workshop will be offered online via a telehealth platform from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 5.
The coronavirus’ impact on our communities, families and world has been enormous. Nearly everyone has experienced a loss due to COVID-19, including changes in how we interact or loss of a job or sense of security. For those who are grieving a death-loss, whether from the virus or other causes, the layers of grief can feel endless. Many have been restricted from seeing loved ones in their last days or unable to gather with friends and family to mourn together and offer each other comfort.
This informative evening will offer ways we can support and help ourselves and others in coping with our grief. The cost of the workshop is $10.
To register, call 888-501-7077 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The center’s services are perhaps needed now more than ever in its history, as individuals and the community grapple with grief in physical isolation due to the COVID-19 health emergency. In response, the center has moved as many of its group and individual bereavement counseling services as is feasible to telehealth. The team’s counselors have all received training in telehealth to be sure that their services meet best practice standards.
