In this episode, Michelle is joined by Lisa Bjelland MSW and Psy D, who works as a trauma therapist and Monte Torkelsen, M Div, President of Abba’s Child Grief Camps for an hour dedicated to finding grace in grief. Y’all let’s be honest, the caregivers of our little ones that we work with can struggle through the various stages of grief. We, the licensed SLP on the interprofessional practice team, can also struggle with grief, especially when the little ones that we work with pass on. What are we to do? How can we help our caregivers? How can we help ourselves? Maintaining our emotional, psychological, physical, and spiritual health is critical. But simply finding the time to engage in the acts of self-care can in itself be a challenge for the busy SLP. Today, Michelle, Lisa, and Monte hold the crucial conversation to help you bring healing, comfort, and joy into your being, so you are better equipped to help others.
By the end of this PodCourse, participants will be able to identify and describe:
- The stages of grief and strategies to handle them.
- Strategies to engage caregivers and their stage of grief.
- Strategies for self-care when caring for others.
