Grief Work in Therapy (2HR)

Grieving is both a state as well as a dynamic process. As clinicians, what can we do to honor how our clients are feeling after a loss, as well as facilitate their healthy movement through different stages of grief? In this training, we will explore the nature of loss and the goals of grief counseling. We will examine the differences between normal grief and more complicated, prolonged grieving. You will also learn a variety of tools and strategies that you can begin using with clients as they deal with the aftermath of loss.

Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the nature of grief and its different stages
  • Differentiate between normal and complicated grief reactions
  • Discuss how to best serve clients who are dealing with loss
  • Practice a variety of practical activities that can be used with clients in order to help them process their grief

Social workers completing this course receive 2 Clinical asynchronous continuing education credits.
