  • Occupational Stress in Healthcare During Covid 19

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Elvira Micali
      Abstract: Illness, Crisis & Loss, Ahead of Print.
      Several studies dedicated to the risk of work-related stress have already shown for some time that healthcare workers are subjected to multiple sources of stress. Recent literature has shown that the SARS CoV 2 pandemic has subjected healthcare workers in emergency/urgent departments and Covid −19 departments to work-related stress risk. In a Sicilian hospital, a sample of 50 health workers (25 men/25 women) was given the “INAIL questionnaire work-related stress risk” structured in 35 items to investigate 7 dimensions of occupational stress (1) Question, (2) Control, (3) Management support, (4) Support from colleagues, (5) Relationships, (6) Role, (7) Change. The results show in 27% of the sample a high level of occupational stress and in 62% an average level of occupational stress with little control and emotional exhaustion, especially in women. In conclusion, to avoid the chronicization of dysfunctional pictures, health institutions must provide staff with psychosocial support services to protect them from the risk of work-related stress.

  • ‘You Took me Back to the sea:’ Using Narrative to Explore and Inform
           the Practice of Social Work with Dying People

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Denise Turner
      Abstract: Illness, Crisis & Loss, Ahead of Print.
      This article centres on a qualitative interview extract, the ‘Story of the Pebble’, in which a West African Hospital Social Worker Ado, working in a UK context, and identifying as a Shaman, describes successfully trusting his instincts to create a symbol for a dying patient. Despite criticisms from colleagues, Ado's capacity to understand his patients needs are justified both before and after her death.The article discusses significant themes from the interview extract, including the meaning of professionalism, practice wisdom and cultural influences in a UK social work context, as well as through Ado's heritage and identification as a Shaman. The article considers holistic patient care in a medical context and suggests this has some useful lessons for social workers, particularly those involved with dying people. Although the extract, and wider research study from which it is drawn, pre-date the Covid 19 pandemic, this is referenced throughout, linking the interview extract to ways of helping practitioners and educators to consider people holistically at end of life.

  • Finding Strength in Times of Crisis' Post-Traumatic Growth During the
           Covid-19 Pandemic: A Saudi Arabian Perspective

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Carmen Winkel, Beverley McNally, Razan Al Omari
      Abstract: Illness, Crisis & Loss, Ahead of Print.
      This paper contributes to the Covid-19 literature by exploring the concept of post-traumatic growth (PTG) utilizing a mixed methods approach. The study examines to what extent the participants experienced positive growth and renewal arising from the prolonged period of lockdowns and emergency online learning. Exploring the experiences of 552 female undergraduate students in a private Saudi Arabian university, an online survey was utilized to gather the data. All the students had experienced online education as a result of the pandemic. The findings indicate the participants underwent a diversity of personal growth experiences. In addition, they also developed different coping mechanisms. The study provides insights into the responses of the students to the issues they were facing during the pandemic. It identifies ways in which participants experienced personal growth as well as a shift in perspective about their lives. There are implications for educators, counselors and policymakers emerging from this study.

  • Children's Experiences of Death Anxiety and Responses to the Covid-19
           Pandemic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: K. Jones, Ben Huges
      Abstract: Illness, Crisis & Loss, Ahead of Print.
      The aim of this study was to explore children's experience and responses to the Covid-19 pandemic through their illustrations and short narrations. During October 2020 and January 2021 data was collected from thirteen children aged 9–10 years old in a primary school in the North-West of England. Children were asked to draw their thoughts and feelings about the pandemic and to write a short narration to accompany the drawing. Thematic analysis of data revealed that during the pandemic children at this age have an understanding of death, experience death anxiety and are able to use creative expression to facilitate meaning of the impact of lockdown on their lives such as feeling isolated, lonely, sad and bored. Creative expression also facilitated adaptive coping mechanisms derived from being able to spend more time with family. The data on primary school children is part of a larger study which involved surveys and interviews with children aged 12–16 years in secondary schools.

  • Is Online Peer Support Helpful in Widowhood' The Lived Experiences of
           Young Parents

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Helle Holmgren
      Abstract: Illness, Crisis & Loss, Ahead of Print.
      With the technological development in general, grief support has now gained a foothold on the internet with a huge variety of offers for bereaved individuals. However, researchers disagree whether this is mainly helpful or unhelpful in grief. The aim of this article was to examine how spousally bereaved individuals with dependent children had experienced the use of an online peer support group following bereavement. To the majority of respondents (83%, n = 70) the group had been immensely helpful. Thematic analysis of participant responses to open-ended questions resulted in three different themes: Identification, Good advice, and Changes in group use over time. The study underlines a need for a renewed focus on how we organize the support for parentally bereaved families in Denmark, and in particular, how the access to information and sources of support following a loss are made available across the board. Finally, the results testify to the fact that online peer support in grief is a means of seeking support in its own right.

  • Coping Orientation of Academic Community in the Time of COVID-19 Pandemic:
           A Pilot Multi-Country Survey Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Saeid Zandi, Fereshteh Ahmadi, Önver A. Cetrez, Sharareh Akhavan
      Abstract: Illness, Crisis & Loss, Ahead of Print.
      In this paper, we have mapped the coping methods used to address the coronavirus pandemic by members of the academic community. We conducted an anonymous survey of a convenient sample of 674 faculty/staff members and students from September to December 2020. A modified version of the RCOPE scale was used for data collection. The results indicate that both religious and existential coping methods were used by respondents. The study also indicates that even though 71% of informants believed in God or another religious figure, 61% reported that they had tried to gain control of the situation directly without the help of God or another religious figure. The ranking of the coping strategies used indicates that the first five methods used by informants were all non-religious coping methods (i.e., secular existential coping methods): regarding life as a part of a greater whole, regarding nature as an important resource, listening to the sound of surrounding nature, being alone and contemplating, and walking/engaging in any activities outdoors giving a spiritual feeling. Our results contribute to the new area of research on academic community's coping with pandemic-related stress and challenges.

  • Factors Associated with Complicated Grief Following a Railway Tragedy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Danielle Maltais, Jacques Cherblanc, Susan Cadell, Christiane Bergeron-Leclerc, Eve Pouliot, Geneviève Fortin, Mélissa Généreux, Mathieu Roy
      Abstract: Illness, Crisis & Loss, Ahead of Print.
      On July 6, 2013, a train with 72 crude oil tank cars derailed in the heart of Lac-Mégantic, a small municipality of 6,000 inhabitants located in Québec (Canada). This tragedy killed 47 people. Technological disasters are rarely studied in bereavement research, and train derailments even less. The goal of this article is to increase our understanding of the bereavement consequences of technological disasters. Specifically, we aim to identify the factors that lead to the experience complicated grief and distinguish from the protective factors. A representative population-based survey was conducted among 268 bereaved people, three and a half years after the train accident. Of these, 71 people (26.5%) experienced complicated grief. People with complicated grief (CG) differ significantly from those without CG in terms of psychological health, perception of physical health, alcohol use and medication, as well as social and professional relationships. Hierarchical logistic regression analysis identified four predictive factors for CG: level of exposure to the disaster, having a negative perception of the event, as well as having a paid job and low-income increase the risk of CG. The importance of having health and social practitioners pay attention to these factors of CG are discussed along with future directions for research.

  • Separation and Discrimination: The Lived Experience of COVID-19 Survivors
           in Philippine Isolation Centers

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sheilalaine G. Romulo, Ryan C. Urbano
      Abstract: Illness, Crisis & Loss, Ahead of Print.
      Social isolation in times of pandemic can affect the well-being of individuals infected with a contagious disease. This study explores the lived experience of the 12 COVID-19 survivors placed in community-based isolation centers in Cebu City, Philippines and whose cases were mild and asymptomatic. In describing their lived experience, we employed Max van Manen's phenomenology of practice. Results show that the COVID-19 survivors have suffered more from the consequences of separation and discrimination than the disease's physiological effects. Educating the whole community about social responsibility and ethical behavior in dealing with COVID-19 survivors is essential to minimize social stigma and discrimination.

      Authors: Esther Ohenewa, Joana Salifu Yendork, Benjamin Amponsah
      Abstract: Illness, Crisis & Loss, Ahead of Print.
      Amputation is necessitated following an accident or a medical condition often to save a patient's life. Despite the existence of the procedure and the rising number of amputees in the Ghanaian context, the emotional experiences of both amputees and their caregivers following amputation has been largely ignored. This qualitative exploratory study explored the emotional experiences of amputees and their caregivers following amputation. Using a semi-structured interview guide, ten (10) amputees and ten (10) caregivers were interviewed. Findings revealed that caregivers and amputees experienced a built up of negative emotions following amputaion. There were slight disparities in the negative emotions experienced by amputees and their caregivers. However, for both amputees and their caregiver, the experience of gratitude and news breaking method influenced their emotional experiences. Implications of the findings are discussed.

           Health

      Authors: Ahmed M. Abdel-Khalek, David Lester, Mahboubeh Dadfar
      Abstract: Illness, Crisis & Loss, Ahead of Print.
      Previous research has shown significant associations between self-rated health and personality. However, these results are inconsistent. This study explored whether the Big Five (BF) personality factors would predict self-rated general physical health. A volunteer convenience sample (601 men; 720 women) of undergraduates at Alexandria University responded to a single item of Self-Rated Physical Health (SRPH) and the Arabic Big Five Personality Inventory (ABFPI). Men obtained significantly higher mean scores than did women for SRPH, Extraversion, Openness, and Conscientiousness; whereas women had a significantly higher mean score than did men for Neuroticism. SRPH was significantly correlated with all the BF scores except for Agreeableness in women. A principal components analysis extracted two components and labeled “Adjustment” and “Healthy extraversion versus neuroticism”. Predictors of SRPH were Openness and low Neuroticism and for men Conscientiousness and low Neuroticism for women. The present results replicate some previous findings and support the role of personality for predicting subjective physical health.

  • War Related Psycho-Social Problems and Mitigating Strategies: A Time of
           Crisis, A Time to Act

      Authors: Awgchew Shimelash Yasegnal
      Abstract: Illness, Crisis & Loss, Ahead of Print.
      Psycho-social problems are recognized as the most profound challenges among war affected population. People experiencing poor psychological health suffer substantial distress and may be more vulnerable to violence, suicidal act, and poor physical health and harmful health practices such as substance abuse. Civilian exposure to war can involve numerous traumatic experiences including feelings of insecurity, witnessing extreme violence, separation from family, and incarceration. This article is intended to investigate the war-related psycho-social problems and mitigating strategies of war declared on Ethiopia’s Amhara region civilians. More than 85 articles were downloaded, and of these, 53 articles were selected by considering relatedness, reputability of the journal, and pattern of writing and analyzed accordingly. The findings showed that displacement, lack of basic needs for survival, social disruption, exposure to violence, depression, psychosis, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, substance use and abuse, and behavioral disturbances are psycho-social problems manifested among people affected by war. Psycho-social support systems such as psychiatric support, counseling, training, advocacy, practical support, community education, community mobilization, forming task forces, identification of vulnerable groups, and developing psycho-social support pyramid are the mitigating strategies of war-related psycho-social problems.

      Abstract: Illness, Crisis & Loss, Ahead of Print.
      The infrequency of sudden deaths in infancy and childhood means that professionals have limited exposure, making it difficult to gain experience and feel confident in their role. This meta-synthesis aims to synthesise qualitative research on the experience of professionals responding to cases of sudden or unexpected death. A systematic literature search was conducted using Academic Search Complete, CINHAL, Embase, psycINFO, PubMed and Web of Science, identifying ten papers for inclusion. Studies were appraised and synthesized using the principles of meta-synthesis. Four superordinate themes were identified: perceptions of role, experience on scene, approaches to coping, and barriers to support. Findings suggest the way responders perceive their role and their experience on scene affect the approach taken to tasks and coping strategies used. The complexity of experience is often not acknowledged by responders or their colleagues. Experiences are compounded by cumulative factors which were expressed by different professional groups and across settings. Several barriers relating to workforce culture within organisations were identified, alongside the implications these have on staff wellbeing and the impact on bereaved families.
