New Insights and Methods for Working with Grief and Loss - Beyond Kubler-Ross

The ability to accept and integrate loss in meaningful ways is crucial to one’s continued development and sense of well-being. Incomplete mourning can be at the heart of impasses with our clients and may be an overlooked aspect of treatment. This workshop will deepen our sensitivity to the impact of grief, its dynamic nature, and provide direction and new skills for supporting clients in their mourning process.

Our presenter, Ms. Jennifer Kreimer, LPC, RPT, CCLS, has assisted children and families in their grief process for over 30 years. She will present a brief overview of various grief models with an emphasis on William Worden’s Four Tasks of Grief: accept the reality of the loss, work through the pain of the grief, adjust to a life in which the deceased is missing, and find an enduring connection with the deceased while embarking on a new life. Techniques for helping clients successfully navigate the “tasks” will be explored.  

Ms. Kreimer uses clinical material to illustrate concepts and techniques. To further enrich, the learning experience, she will guide us in our own personal reflection on loss and grief.

The clinical examples used in the presentation are of children’s experiences but will inform our clinical work with adults’ experiences with loss as well. Participants will receive printed material of the workshop presentation and strategies to assist with the tasks of mourning. 

Participants in this workshop will:

1)    Gain a basic understanding of various grief models beyond Kubler-Ross.

2)    Describe William Worden’s Four Tasks of Mourning and how they relate to the losses experienced by children, teens and adults in your practice.

3)    List 2-3 specific strategies for each task that can be utilized by children, teens and adults who have experienced a death/loss.

4)    Enhance their understanding of the four tasks through participation in the guided personal reflection and interventions.
