Description

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.

Research:  Available research on this topic includes but is not limited to:
1. Martin, S. (2016). Coping with the Emotional Aspects of a Client's Death. The New Social Worker.
2. Smith, K. (2019). Grief in the Workplace. Psycom
3. Vasquez, A. (2020). 12 Things You Can Do After a Coworker Dies. Cake Blog 
4. Weiss, R, (2015) How Therapists Mourn. New York Times July 4.

Target Audience: social workers, mental health practitioners, creative arts therapists, marriage and facility therapists, psychologists, medical professionals, addiction professionals, case managers, and other interested individuals.

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.

Today, along with her dog Isabella, she serves a variety of individuals and families with loss related issues. Day previously worked at the Lee Gross Anthone Child Advocacy Center in Buffalo as a therapist with sexually abused children and severely physically abused children. She also works as part-time faculty at the UB School of Social Work as well as a group facilitator with Stone’s Buddies at Oishei Children’s Hospital.
