Introduction Grief and Growth: An Appreciative Journey

ABSTRACT

In October 2019, when the co-editors of this May 2020 issue of AI Practitioner were invited to design and edit an issue on the special theme of ‘Grief and Growth’, little could anyone imagine that the theme would be so profoundly relevant at the time of issue’s release. In the sweeping storm of the Covid-19 crisis, humankind is being called to contemplate a transcendent and harmonious way to heal and renew. This issue seeks to explain ‘the maze of grief’ and explore ‘the mystique of growth’ in the wake of loss, trauma and grief.
