Ambiguous Loss and its Impact on Spiritual Healing

presented by Linda Golding MA BCC

In her 1999 book "Ambiguous Loss: Learning to Live with Unresolved Grief" Dr. Pauline Boss outlines her psychological theory and her experience working to help patients recover resilience in order to navigate through continuing ambiguity and grief. The workshop will use a mixture of lecture, case studies and interactive small groups to apply ambiguous loss, that is "losses without finality or resolution," in an acute care setting with patients, families and staff.

Learning Objectives

  • The distinctions between regular loss and ambiguous loss, and the different kinds of ambiguous loss

  • Identify how ambiguous loss can hinder spiritual healing

  • Use Ambiguous Loss theory to assist in spiritual screening and assessment
