Grief is both a personal and professional phenomenon that significantly impacts those working in the healthcare professions in particular ways – there is sometimes a dissonance between what we feel when faced with loss and what we are expected to feel by the nature of one’s role or workplace boundaries.
And yet, feeling grief and experiencing trauma are part of what makes us human, and having tools to comprehend and express the nuances of such feelings can potentially alleviate the risk of burnout and even create meaningful connections with patients, their families, and colleagues.
Kat Hurley, LMSW, APHSW-C, a palliative care social worker, has been exploring ways to address different types of grief, how and why we experience it, and strategies for navigating potential feelings of helplessness and compassion fatigue through workshops that include meditation, reflection prompts, and other techniques.
Members of GHHS and the larger Gold community are invited to participate in an interactive workshop led by Kat where participants in small, intimate groups will be prompted to reflect, write, and share individual reflections and discover personally useful coping tools they can draw on in the future.
Join us at the 2022 Gold Humanism Virtual Conference to attend this workshop on grief and many other meaningful sessions that explore the 2021-2022 theme, Healing the Heart of Healthcare: Reimagining How We Listen, Connect, and Collaborate.
