Event description



This two-day workshop will provide an in-depth presentation of strategies and core procedures used in Complicated Grief Treatment (CGT), the time-limited, targeted psychotherapy that has been tested and proven efficacious in three large NIMH-funded randomized controlled trials.

The workshop will briefly review the theoretical underpinnings of CGT and provide an introduction to the structure of the 16-session treatment protocol. Primary focus will be on the core signature techniques of this treatment including:

  • Pretreatment assessment

  • Aspirational goals work

  • Building support

  • Imaginal revisiting

  • Situational revisiting

  • Imaginal conversation

*The workshop will run from 9:00am - 5:00pm on both Thursday and Friday.
