April 2 & 9, 2022

The Advanced Clinical Education Foundation of the NYSSCSW Presents our:

53rd ANNUAL EDUCATION CONFERENCE
LIVES DISRUPTED: RESILIENCE IN THE FACE OF LOSS

Program Description

Living in this age of COVID, each of us has suffered a sequela of complicated physiological and psychological effects. In 2005, Oliver Sachs co-authored an op-ed in the Times, emphasizing that discrete flu viruses could cause “shadow pandemics.” Although his focus was on the neurological complications, he reminded and presented us with the idea of shadow aftermaths to the original viral contagion.  “Such post-viral diseases have been recorded since the time of Hippocrates.”

The focus of our conference is to trace and honor the legacy of our collective experience during this current pandemic.  In our first Saturday presentation we consider the heartbreaking emotional and physical challenges of personal loss and grief as well as long-term health conditions of those who have survived Covid 19.  In our second Saturday presentation, we will consider reflections of the past two years and the experiential nature of loneliness and solitude as well as the potential for recreating our lives in more fulfilling ways.
