Crisis Care during Traumatic Grief

Grief is a common and healthy response to the loss of a friend or loved one. Grief is also a common reaction to losses of many other kinds – jobs, marriages, homes, health, or reputation. Care providers encounter people who have experienced many losses both personally and professionally. Traumatic events complicate the grieving process. This course will present key concepts related to grief and loss, increasing awareness of how trauma impacts grieving and mourning -- emotionally, cognitively, socially, spiritually, and relationally. Learn a little about how trauma affects the brain, how the brain goes into over-drive, and what care providers can do to support in traumatic grief.
