With half a million dead from COVID-19, how does the United States mourn its losses? The pandemic has necessitated changes to funeral ceremonies and other rituals to honor deceased loved ones, while deaths from the pandemic continue. What does it mean to grieve — both as individuals and as a society– during this pandemic? And how do we bolster ourselves to cope with the scope of the loss now and in the future? Join clinical psychologist Christy Denckla and The World’s Elana Gordon in this online Q&A.
