Grieving Over The Loss of Our "Old Ways" of Working: Pandemic Pivots in Children & Youth Mental Health Services webinar series

Presenter(s): Lisa Robinson, Grief Therapist, Andrea Warnick Consulting
Description: In this webinar, attendees will hear from Lisa Robinson who is a Grief Therapist with Andrea Warnick Consulting. This webinar will explore the pandemic through the lens of grief. Participants will leave this webinar with a greater understanding of grief as an individual and collective experience and how it shows up across ages and stages in life. Additionally, practical ways that you and those you care about can actively address and process grief will be presented. A specific focus will be on how to support school age children through the ever (and quickly!) changing landscape of living in a COVID and post-COVID world.

Lisa is a Registered Social Worker who focuses her professional and creative energy on supporting children, youth and adults through tough situations. In addition to working as a grief therapist at  Andrea Warnick Consulting, she is also a cancer support group facilitator at Gilda's Club. Lisa is currently working towards her certification as a trauma integration clinician. With over 10 years of experience working with children and families affected by life-threatening illnesses in organizations including Camp Oochigeas and SeriousFun Children's Network, she has seen the impact that therapeutic intervention can have on children's ability to engage in life. She uses narrative therapy as her primary therapeutic framework while incorporating elements of CBT to develop a collaborative understanding of the individual experience. Lisa practices in Toronto and Guelph.

This workshop series is supported by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund & Community Foundations of Canada.

  • It's the first time I've listened to a webinar and I think I'm hooked-interesting way to get in a quick learning. I'm so glad to find out today that I can listen to it again and share it. I will definitely be doing both, including sharing it with my childrens' principal in hopes she will share with the teachers.

  • I very much value these learning opportunities - it's great to be able to access some learning in the middle of the day and when education dollars are so scarce.
