PS MHTTC Event: Getting Grief Ready at Work – A Starter Kit Workshop Series
Join the Pacific Southwest Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (PS MHTTC) as we approach what many celebrate at the “holiday season” to explore how we can utilize the starter kit in our own management, supervision, and leadership. The winter holidays are generally a time when family and friends gather for celebration and the absence of someone who died can be particularly distressing. It can be a particularly difficult time for those who are grieving, even if the death occurred more than a year prior.
By exploring the Starter Kit, we can be ready and responsive, and help cultivate a grief-sensitive culture. This two part workshop series offers a text-study exploration of the Starter Kit (released in March, 2022)
