Since 2014, we have been weekly visitors to one of Baltimore City’s crowded homeless shelters. We’ve been tasked with helping residents understand loss and the emotions of grief. With the combined context of research and our anecdotal understanding of working with individuals experiencing homelessness, we hope attendees will gain an understanding of the issues facing individuals who have limited resources yet experience multiple losses and the importance of helping these individuals identify their losses and find realistic ways to explore and express their grief.
After this training, participants will be able to…
Cite the reasons why people living in poverty are at an increased risk of experiencing loss, secondary loss and cumulative loss.
Identify barriers individuals experiencing homelessness face in understanding and acknowledging their loss and in grieving these losses.
Formulate a comprehensive plan for working with individuals living in poverty.
