Got a Griever in Your Office?
Zoom Meeting Only
Access Code will be sent after registration.
Grief is one of the top 3 reasons that people come to therapy. In grad school, many therapists did not have a separate course on how to address grief with our clients. Yet, unresolved grief from significant losses (not exclusive to the death of a loved one) is often underlying the depressive and anxiety symptoms that lead clients to our offices.
In the morning session we will be covering:
- The Biggest Mistakes Therapists Make When Their Client has had a Major Loss … and how to avoid them.
- Definitions of Grief, Grief Theory and Losses
- Symptoms of Grief
In the afternoon session we will be covering:
- Top 10 questions to ask clients when they’ve experienced a significant loss
- How to address grief from the first session
- How to help your clients with preparing for significant holidays/anniversaries without their loved one.
At the end of this workshop, students will be able to:
- Identify at least 3 theoretical orientations re grief.
- Identify at least 5 symptoms that indicate unresolved grief.
- Identify at least 3 ways to address grief directly with clients in the office.
- Identify 5 questions to use in session with a grief client.
- Identify strategies for dealing with clients’ holiday and anniversary reactions.
