The experience of grief for users of social media has shifted from the experience of grief that most of us were familiar with prior to the explosion of online social media platforms. We have seen shifts in the manner in which individuals share information about their grief and seek support and understanding. We have also seen shifts in how individuals provide support and understanding (or not) for those who are grieving. The focus of this webinar is to provide an overview of how grief has been influenced by social media, including the benefits and challenges of grieving in the age of social media.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

1. Recognize the shifts in the grieving process that have occurred since the advent of social media, including positive interactions.
2. Assist clients who are grieving in navigating social media in ways that are facilitative and avoid using it in ways that are harmful.
3. Identify ways to use social media that help to dispel myths about grief and provide modeling of supportive grief responses.
