The use of social media is also witness to what can be called "cybergrieving." Through tools like Facebook, Twitter, online condolence books, and virtual memorials, people are expressing their grief in new ways using technology. Clients experiencing complicated mourning may be afraid to turn to traditional forms of help, and due to disenfranchised losses will seek out virtual communities and resources online. This interactive presentation will provide counselor educators with tools to assist students in helping clients express their grief in healthy ways using social media.
