El Comercio event: Reflections on grief in times of pandemic

Escenario Digital Arequipa
Read more

Losing a loved one was always hard, but the Covid-19 pandemic has made the process worse. Loses have become more awkward; often a relative has gone to the hospital and never been seen again, with no goodbyes possible because of the sanitary constraints. Funerals might be carried out on Zoom, when at all, and the bereaved have not been able to receive hugs of consolation. With all this in mind, this conversation brings together specialists to talk about the different ways of dealing with grief, and they will tell us stories of the uncertainty caused by the fear of death, the fear of loss and testimony of pain and mourning. They will also talk about how people react in different ways during grieving, with different emotional responses when faced with loss: some become depressed, triggering a family crisis, and in other cases people have undergone a process of renewal, and have found the motivation to move on. With the writer Alonso Cueto, the psychoanalyst Moisés Lemlij Malamud and the director of the NGO CEDRO Carmen Masías Claux in conversation with the Head of Content at El Comercio newspaper, Jaime Bedoya.
