Other TitlesHow to Support Grieving Employees
AbstractThere is much pain associated with planning a funeral or wake on video. All of the usual rituals around loss and grief are being disrupted by the pandemic. In spite of these losses, there are also some silver linings. For example, more people will have a video of their loved one's service than ever before. Re-visiting remembrances can add to healing, a little bit at time. Also, we have great access to counseling services now that tele-health counseling is so widely available.
DescriptionIn every way, the grieving process is being interrupted. When someone is departing this world, we want to physically hold them and be held. We want to connect with people who knew the deceased and hold them as well. We want to share meals, drinks, tears and laughter while we recall and re-tell stories about our shared loved one or friend. We want to lean on clergy, funeral directors, and pall bearers while we go through the process, as we have all of our lives. How can we do this online? If we cry alone in front of a computer, will it help us to heal? No one has answers yet because we are just now identifying the questions.
