Coronavirus Advice Webinar: Helping the grieving during the pandemic 

In this webinar, we explored different aspects of grief, loss and bereavement. Diane Watts was in conversation with Baptist minister and bereavement counsellor Vania John-Baptiste, and Pete English who works with At A Loss, a national bereavement resource. Pete’s own specialism is in helping young people process loss. Together they talked through what loss and bereavement are, different ways they are experienced, and simple ways we can walk with those who for whom they are a present reality.
