Episode 4: Grief

In this episode, we join a conversation between HMA Principals Dr. Jeffrey Ring and Dr. Gina Lasky – nationally renowned clinical psychologists in culturally responsive healthcare and behavioral health.

Health and behavioral healthcare providers in NY are experiencing an unprecedented volume of loss – clients and patients that they serve, colleagues, and their own families and friends. All New Yorkers are also experiencing a sudden loss of society as we knew it. This podcast is dedicated to helping direct health/ BH providers with grieving strategies that acknowledge loss and anger, as well as promote hope and resiliency to keep NY strong.
