The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted many of our assumptions about how to navigate loss.

Key facts:

For many, the kaleidoscope of conflicting feelings – grief, guilt, anger, anxiety, regret – is heightened. Leaders in organisations are finding it equally hard to know how to help staff.As the uncertainties of the ‘survival’ phase of the crisis give way to a complex ‘new normal’, rituals and markers of death will continue to be disrupted and lives will be afflicted by chain reactions of loss.

The longer-term impacts of psychological and social stress on many population groups will surface, and therapeutic and self-help responses will need to be modified and expanded.Grief, Loss, and Dying During COVID-19 at The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust by FutureLearn  will introduce you to the key skills and principles required to provide effective, safe, and helping responses to anyone dealing with loss during this time.
