Rebuilding & Reengaging: School-Based Grief Support Post Pandemic Live Interactive Webinar
August 4, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT
We know the impact that COVID-19 has had on students’ social development, mental health, and academic progress. This experience has also significantly changed how our schools operate. Schools with high levels of grief that need support have competing priorities and limited staff capacity. This presentation will identify some of the various barriers to school-based grief programming and explore solutions to help programs rebuild their school-based grief support through engaging new school partners and re-engaging previous school partners.
By the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the changes and challenges in administering school-based grief programs.
- Implement strategies to engage new school partners.
- Discuss ways to renew and steward relationships with lapsed school and community connections.
