The loss of a cherished one impacts each aspect of our lives. Yet, we rarely address grief in a positive way in our families. Most families don’t account for how grieving impacts engagement and wellness. A difficult part of grief is getting back a sense of normalcy, including returning to work after experiencing a loss. It can be difficult for individuals to feel like themselves. It can also be challenging for colleagues and managers to know how to support grieving employees at work. We will explore the factors, indicators, triggers, and myths of grief, and how to manage our self care when experienced.


  1. Explore the factors, indicators, triggers, and myths of grief.
  2. Navigate self care and resources for grief.
