Welcome to COVID Chronicles with Jenny Rudolph, a just-in-time podcast checking in with friends and colleagues from the front lines of healthcare, the home front, and other unique perspectives on learning and connecting in the time of coronavirus.

Joining us this week is Liz Crowe, a pediatric social worker, self-described “naughty Australian,” cohost of the Coda Change podcast, and author of The Little Book of Loss and Grief You Can Read While You Cry.

Liz joins us today to discuss many topics including finding small moments of humor and release while mucking through unprecedented levels of difficult work, mindsets for post-traumatic growth, and framing your challenges in a way that makes them survivable.

We also dive in depth into how to don your armor and doff your grief by building microtransitions and boundaries including briefing and debriefing, mental rehearsal, and finding space from COVID related noise when it threatens to break through the barriers between our work and home life.

We hope this podcast will help you to create a small oasis in your day.
