Dr. Tashel Bordere Participates in ADEC Panel Discussion

p>Tashel BordereDr. Tashel Bordere, Assistant Professor at HDFS, was part of an interdisciplinary panel (clinician, hospice, academia, mortician, chaplain) discussion and interview sponsored by the Association for Death Education and Counseling on “Grief, Bereavement and Death at a Distance.” The panel was a timely discussion that provided an inside look around coping with death losses but largely focuses on the profound impact of non-death losses (coping and supporting families, students, communities from a distance, separation from family members hospitalized with COVID and other serious conditions – Cancer, new learning and work environments). It has relevance both from a professional standpoint and a personal standpoint as many of our students, faculty and administrators will be personally impacted by COVID-19 in some form. It also took a look at “last” responders (funeral directors) who are especially important in this pandemic but are not being recognized like “first” responders in the media.
