Description

Aunque se ha prestado mucha atención a las personas que se han enfermado por COVID-19 o que sufren de COVID-19 prolongado, no se les ha dado el mismo nivel de atención a la experiencia que han vivido sus familiares y sus cuidadores. En este seminario presentaré un modelo de testimonio que nos relata sobre los diversos sentimientos que pueden experimentar los miembros de la familia y que pueden ir desde la frustración e impotencia hasta la armonía y competencia. También, hablaré sobre cómo una persona enferma puede estar presente pero no completamente "allí", lo que puede crear patrones de interacción familiar desafiantes. Haré reflexiones sobre cómo los profesionales de salud pueden prepararse para trabajar con familias afectadas por COVID-19 o COVID-19 prolongado y presentaré algunas sugerencias para guiar a las parejas que estén enfrentando desafíos en sus relaciones.

Kaethe Weingarten, Ph.D. (she/her) directs the Witness to Witness (W2W) Program for MCN. The goal of W2W is to help the helpers, primarily serving health care workers, attorneys and journalists working with vulnerable populations. She received her doctorate from Harvard University in 1974. She has taught at Wellesley College (1975-1979), Harvard Medical School (1981-2017), where she was an Associate Clinical Professor of Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at Children’s Hospital Boston and then Cambridge Health Alliance, and at the Family Institute of Cambridge (1982-2009). She founded and directed the Program in Families, Trauma and Resilience at the Family Institute of Cambridge. Internationally, she has taught in Africa, Australia, Canada, Europe and New Zealand, where she was a Fullbright Specialist. She has given over 300 presentations and been a keynote speaker at numerous local, national and international conferences. She serves on the editorial boards of five journals. In 2002 she was awarded the highest honor of the American Family Therapy Academy, the award for Distinguished Contribution to Family Theory and Practice. She has written about her work in six books (which she has authored or edited) and over 100 articles, chapters and essays. Her most recent book, Common Shock: Witnessing Violence Every Day- How We Are Harmed, How We Can Heal won the 2004 Nautilus Award for Social Change. Dr. Weingarten’s work focuses on the development and dissemination of a witnessing model. One prong of the work is about the effects of witnessing violence and trauma in the context of domestic, inter-ethnic, racial, political and other forms of conflict. The other prong of the witnessing work is in the context of healthcare, illness and disability. Her work on reasonable hope has been widely cited. In 2013, Dr. Weingarten and her husband moved to Berkeley, CA to be near their children and five grandchildren. There she resumed a dance and choreography practice she had let lapse for forty-five years. Since moving to Berkeley, she and her dance collaborator have been awarded five grants for their choreography with elder dancers applying a witnessing model in public spaces. In 2018 they performed at the Oakland Museum of California. In her spare time she enjoys hiking, baking and crocheting afghans.
