Many who are bereaved seek clinical support during this difficult time in their lives as they struggle to cope with loss. Grievers often question “Why did this happen”, “How will I go on without the person”, “When will the sadness end?” Clinicians also struggle to help their clients answer these questions. Participants in this course will learn about grief support and its significant place in the bereavement process. This class will review the current literature and theory on grief work, dispel myths and provide interventions, assessment tools and therapeutic techniques.  

Method: Lecture, discussion

Learning Objectives:

  • To define grief/bereavement
  • To define grief support/counseling and its effects on the bereavement process
  • To provide evidence based research, techniques, and clinical case work supporting the efficacy of grief counseling.
