Hosted by Palo Alto Therapy
Tuesday, August 15th, 2023 | 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM
*2 Hour Video Presentation*
The traditional “5 stages of grief” model is outdated and lacks sound empirical evidence. More is needed than the 5 stages to help clients with their complicated grief from multiple losses, disenfranchised grief and inadequate support. This calls for a re-examination of how loss and grief are defined. Learn to recognize the 7 areas of our clients’ lives that are impacted by grief: Cognitive, Physical, Emotional, Spiritual, Social, Family, and Work. You will also learn how to differentiate between symptoms of grief and trauma, how traumatic grief can complicate grief, and the criteria for Prolonged Grief Disorder.
1. Equip clinicians with the knowledge to understand grief, mourning, and loss and recognize the signs/symptoms of grief.
2. Examine Traumatic Grief and the criteria for Prolonged Grief Disorder.
- Define at least 3 types of grief.
- Describe 5 different types of loss.
- Identify at least 5 signs/symptoms of grief.
- Define the criteria for Prolonged Grief Disorder.
- Describe the risks of Prolonged Grief Disorder.
