     Compassionate Care During Traumatic Grief

     We are becoming a nation of mourners as mass violence becomes so commonplace. We are experiencing traumatic grief as we experience unexpected loss. We are shocked, stunned, angry, fearful, and shattered. We feel vulnerable as our sense of security fades and helplessness increases. We grieve and mourn while we are traumatized by our losses.

     Survivors are changed as they experience post traumatic stress; and helpers are at a loss about how to be effective helpers. We are impatient to support those who have been impacted, but we are baffled about what might be helpful.

     From awareness to implementation – learn some practical things you can do to support those who have been impacted by critical events that result in death. Learn about traumatic grief and how to be a helpful friend or family member.
