Join this informal, facilitated discussion on the intergenerational experience as it relates to COVID-19, and the many forms grief and bereavement take as it relates to generational lenses. This session will share the social work community of practice as it relates to specific intergenerational issues during the ongoing pandemic, such as grieving virtually, social distancing, the psychosocial phenomenon of forming and sustaining pods. I hope to provide a forum for discussion, reflection, and supportive tools that can be utilized in this unimaginable time of both collective and personal grief and loss.
