Wounded Healer: Navigating the Loss of a Client or Colleague
Original Recording Date :
Length: 3 hours


Course Format

Recorded webinar.


Experiencing the loss of those we care about can be a traumatic event that can be difficult and misunderstood. But what happens when a client or coworker dies? In such cases we often are left with feelings of inadequacy for ourselves and those we work with or supervise.

This workshop will address those issues and provide concrete interventions for both ourselves and our colleagues.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the characteristics of adult bereavement.
  2. Compare and contrast adult bereavement with the unique characteristics related to loss of a client or coworker.
  3. Apply supportive interventions to help staff impacted by the loss.
  4. Develop your own sense of self and provide self-care.

She entered the field of social work after being a registered professional nurse for 25 years in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Oishei Children’s Hospital of Buffalo. While working as a nurse she was driven to begin working in the field of bereavement, Day began a support group for women who had lost their mother’s as children which led to a career move into social work. While attending graduate school at UB, she took her desire to work in the area of bereavement one-step further and founded Circle of Daughters Inc., a non-profit organization that offers support services and individual therapy to children, adolescents and adults who have experienced a loss. Today, along with her dog Isabella, she serves a variety of individuals and families with loss related issues.
