Grief is a natural response to the loss of a loved one. For most people, the symptoms of grief begin to decrease over time. However, for some people, the feeling of intense grief persists, and the symptoms are severe enough to cause problems and stop them from continuing with their lives. Prolonged grief disorder is characterized by intense and persistent grief that causes problems and interferes with daily life. An estimated 7%-10% of bereaved adults will experience the persistent symptoms of prolonged grief disorder (Szuhany et al., 2021). Among children and adolescents who have lost a loved one, approximately 5%-10% will experience depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and/or prolonged grief disorder following bereavement (Melhem et al., 2013). This webinar addresses the symptoms, causes, and treatment for prolonged grief.
Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:
- Define Prolong Grief Disorder.
- Recognize several of the possible symptoms of the disorder.
- Develop a list of open-ended questions to help grieving clients share their stories.
- Identify high-risk factors for prolonged grief.
- Apply the “PLACE” method to help clients find a place for their grief.
