Introduction to our way of understanding grief; adaptation to loss and impediments to adaptation; overview of evidence-based grief therapy.

About this Event

Overview

The Center for Complicated Grief’s workshops focus on knowledge and skills needed to work with complicated grief (CG) using a time-limited, targeted psychotherapy that has been tested and proven efficacious in three large NIMH-funded randomized controlled trials.

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

Learning Objectives

  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

Who should attend?

  • Psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychiatrists, physicians and nurses.
  • Any member of a helping profession that works with grief
  • Graduate student in an accredited health or mental health program interested in working with grief
