Objectives for this presentation include:

  • Define and describe culturally conscientious practice (e.g., self-awareness), suffocated grief, and foundational concepts (intersectionality, stigma, privilege) related to grief with attention to the Covid-19 pandemic and social unrest.
  • Critically evaluate social justice issues in bereavement within multiple contexts (developmental, educational, social, geographic) to uncover strengths and barriers in work with marginalized youth and families at the individual, community and systemic levels.
  • Describe and apply strategies that facilitate trust and outreach with marginalized youth and families both in cases of socially sanctioned (e.g., health-related deaths) and disenfranchising death loss, trauma, and grief (e.g., homicide, deaths related to drug overdose) encounters.
