This presentation explores the impact of existential crises (COVID, political, social, and climate) on our and our patients' ability to mourn within and outside analytic space.

Is it possible for us to mourn the losses of 2020 and 2021 when, in 2022, we are at best semi-post-Covid?  Do we analysts have the requisite psychic and reflective space to help our patients with something that continues to upend the quotidian for all of us?

After attending this workshop, participants should be able to:

  1. describe the mourning process and what limits it today
  2. describe contemporary understandings of how we deal with loss across a lifetime
  3. describe the dynamic function of commemorative ritual

Part of the Professional Vulnerability: Dread, Hope and Resilience Seminar Series.
