In a recent survey of Program graduates, students expressed a desire for more connection with other students and faculty while in the Program.
As a faculty, we brainstormed some ideas for how we might accomplish this during this challenging time.
We have decided to provide some dedicated online space and time on a regular basis for students to have the opportunity to socialize with their fellow nccuCounseling students. This will be an opportunity to network, to get your know your colleagues outside of the "classroom", and to be able to interact with faculty in a different context.
Title: Grieving an Incarcerated Loved One: Conceptualization and Treatment Recommendations
Date: March 16, 2021 @ 1:00pm EDT
Presenters: Drs. Kelly King and Peggy Whiting, Damon Toone
Incarceration touches many families in communities across the United States. A new and growing research base frames the experience of having a family member incarcerated as a loss. This grief can be comparable to death losses, however, it also has meaningful differences in terms of the stigma and invalidation often surrounding loss to incarceration. In this presentation we will talk about the context of incarceration as well as the contributions that grief and loss counseling can make to counselors supporting people who are system-impacted.
