Shattered Assumptions: Treat Grieving Clients Whose World Has Been Turned Upside Down



When our sense of normalcy is disrupted, and the assumptions that ground and stabilize us are turned upside down, we feel like we’ve been thrust into a new world where nothing makes sense.  

During the pandemic we’ve all experienced multiple losses. Not just death, but the subsequent domino effect of losses and our collective loss of safety, security, identity, social connection, independence and all in our world we once considered normal.  

But often these abstract and secondary losses fail to be recognized and properly mourned, complicating your clients’ grief and prolonging their suffering.  

Dr. Joy Samuels has over 30 years of experience as a licensed counsellor and has taught professionals across the country how they can improve their work with grieving clients.   

Join her as she gives you the tools and strategies you need to help your clients acknowledge abstract and secondary losses and have them better equipped to face them so they can move forward when their expectations and assumptions about the world are shattered.
