04.11.24 1 pm – 3 pm – Coping with grief (Online Training)

Thursday, April 11, 1 pm – 3 pm

Training Overview:

Facing death and the grief that comes with death is never easy. When the death is due to an overdose, or happens to a person who uses drugs, the death is often met with lack of understanding and sympathy.

In this two-hour training we will hold space for unpacking complex feelings around grief and death, share strategies for processing grief, and brainstorm organizational and institutional supports needed to sustainably hold grief around overdose and death to structural violence.

By the end of the training, participants will be able to:

  • Identify and be able to respond to common narratives around grief and death.
  • List at least two strategies for processing and unpacking grief in their lives.
  • Identify at least one organizational or institutional support needed for overdose prevention work.
