A large percentage of people with a substance misuse disorders have untreated trauma and unresolved grief. Professionals that work in the substance misuse field are continually exposed to grieving individuals – that is called a cumulative stress. SUD professionals are likely to know a client, co-worker, friend, or family member that completed suicide. That is direct stress. In 2018, Frank Greenagel lost his friend and close colleague, Eric Arauz. He wrote about grief and how he processed it. This class melds the personal and professional into a series of lessons on how we can deal with tragedy and loss. And come out of it. And how we can help clients do the same.
