Event description

Description

Overview

This one-day workshop is designed to provide a conceptual framework for understanding grief and adaptation to loss generally and in relation to complicated grief. We include strategies and procedures for screening, diagnosis and assessment of individuals with complicated grief and discuss how to differentiate this condition from major depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. We provide an overview of Complicated Grief Treatment (CGT) and introduce some simple, practical procedures that you can use in your practice.




Learning Objectives

Through a combination of didactic content, interactive activities and group discussions, you will learn how to:

  1. Demonstrate understanding of acute, integrated and complicated grief and adaptation to loss by explaining these concepts to a friend or family member
  2. Implement effective screening, diagnosis and assessment procedures with bereaved clients
  3. Recognize differences between CG, PTSD and MDD
  4. Introduce and explain the use of a grief monitoring diary
  5. Organize a plan to do situational revisiting

  • Any member of a helping profession that works with grief
