About this event

For those coping with grief and loss, returning to work can be an additional challenge. This program will discuss re-entry into the work place (whether in-person or remotely) as a bereaved survivor and what that might look and feel like when trying to establish a routine. Dr. Hensley will discuss the importance of physical, emotional, and spiritual self-care during this difficult transition and share some ideas for developing coping skills to manage grief while going back to work. The program will also be helpful to those who are supporting colleagues or employees who are grieving.
