Title: Grief, Loss & Change. Ethical dilemmas and other tales from the quarantine.
This program meets the 3.0 ethics hours for the Ohio Social Worker, Counselor, and Marriage and Family Therapy Board. We are living in unprecedented times as we navigate businesses, and organizations during a time of a global pandemic. We are trading off the increased productivity of working from home, with the isolation of losing teamwork. We are questioning the value of some businesses after they have been closed for months (obtaining products and services online; groceries, library books, and the funeral process. Do these services become obsolete?) However, all of this comes at a cost, to our stress levels, our mental health, and our livelihood. We will explore grief, loss, and the Covid-19 crisis and the ethical dilemmas healthcare professionals have faced, how to navigate the decision-making process, and how to design a “new normal” approach to care moving forward. This program will highlight how Covid-19 has increased substance abuse issues as well as to show how the lack of in-person resources has impacted individuals in need of care and treatment.
- Describe grief and loss for clients as experienced from a global pandemic perspective, including how not participating in end-of-life care and funeral rituals impact the grief process. 9:00 am – 10:00 am, 60 minutes.
- 15-minute break 10:00 -10:15 am
- Identify and discuss examples of client/patient ethical dilemmas introduced through the pandemic and the decision-making process. 10:15 – 11:15 am, 60 minutes.
- Define and explain how Motivational Interviewing can be utilized to support clients/patients through the process of change. 11:15 -12:15 pm, 60 minutes.
