Grief Support Intensive: Essential Theory and Interventions for Working With Grief
Grief is one of the few experiences that nearly every client faces at some point. Therapists, social workers, and counselors in almost all settings are asked to support to clients grieving both recent and remote losses. And yet the majority of Masters and PhD programs in these fields do not require coursework in grief and bereavement. The landscape of modern grief theory has changed significantly over the last 50 years and yet much of the coursework that exists has failed to incorporate the most recent research and theory, leaving many without a strong foundation for understanding and supporting those in grief.
This fifteen-hour intensive is developed to provide clinicians with the essential theoretical and practical knowledge required to support clients grieving both death and non-death losses. Using research around risk and resilience after loss, alongside the most current theories of attachment and the dual process model of coping with loss while restoring life, participants will learn tools for helping clients integrate the loss into their lives while maintaining a dynamic internal continued bond with loved ones.
Participants may register for the full 2.5 days or participate in individual sessions.
