About this event

Applying Procedures from Prolonged Grief Disorder Therapy (PGDT) in Clinical Practice

Overview

Principles of PGDT may be particularly applicable when treating patients who continue to grieve over an extended period of time without relief. Drawing on a case study of a homicide-bereaved mother “stuck” in a pattern of paralyzing rumination and isolative avoidance for almost 10 years after her son’s murder, the presenter shows how techniques of imaginal revisiting and situational revisiting can be skillfully employed to re-mobilize her coping and begin to reverse nearly a decade of “not living anymore.” Outcome indicators from the patient’s own behavioral repertoire, as related to the clinician, validate the results of the intervention and demonstrate the extent of her recovery.

Learning Objectives :

  1. Discuss how the Dual Process Model of Coping with Bereavement informs grief therapy.
  2. Describe the component of imaginal revisiting in Prolonged Grief Disorder Treatment (PGDT).
  3. Describe the component of situational revisiting in PGDT.
