Evidence-Based Assessment of Bereavement and Grief in the Era of COVID-19

The coronavirus pandemic has been a time of loss. Loss of simple freedoms. Loss of social interaction. Loss of financial stability. And most poignant of all, loss of life.

In order to combat the heightened breadth and depth of potentially traumatic exposures facing the nation’s youth, it is critical that clinicians and helping professionals are equipped with actionable information, based on the most current evidence, to recognize and address critical presentations of grief.
