Loss and subsequent grief can strike at any time, not pausing to allow those who experience it to catch their breath and recover before a new trauma is experienced. This is especially true during an extended pandemic such as COVID-19 and its associated stressors due to quarantine, economic impacts, social justice uprisings, politics, etc.
In June, 2020 and again in October 2020, a panel of survivors of sudden, traumatic death participated in a focused conversation about their grief in the time of COVID. The virtual audience was able to ask questions, make comments and add reflections about their own loss and grief. Due to the success of this first engagement, Virginia Mason is offering a follow up discussion, delving deeper into the experiences of the panelists, as the time of COVID extends and additional societal changes emerge.
The goal of these two events was to foster healing for all sudden, traumatic death survivors as they hear the first-hand stories of others with a shared experience.
