This program explores the most current theoretical perspectives on loss and grief, emphasizing that loss cannot only engender grief but growth. The presentation explores the phenomena of post-traumatic growth, noting research on the concept as well as strategies professionals can use in assisting grieving individuals. The presentation would be useful to a range of professionals who counsel persons who are bereaved including psychologists, counselors, clergy, social workers, nurses, and other health care workers, as well as educators, teachers and school-based personnel and individuals who offer education on loss, grief, dying or death. In addition, individuals struggling with loss may find self-help strategies as they cope with the loss.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Define post-traumatic growth and differentiate it from resilience;
  2. Identify factors associated with resilience and post-traumatic growth;
  3. Discuss six possible and identified areas of growth;
  4. Describe ways that support groups can facilitate post-traumatic growth;
  5. Describe appropriate interventive strategies that encourage post-traumatic growth;
  6. Identify self-help strategies that can assist individuals who are grieving to grow even as they grieve.
