Understanding Grief and Loss in a Death Denying Culture
The Dynamics of Working With the Bereaved (Children, Teens and Adults) After a Sudden or Expected Loss
This program will focus on the defining mourning, grief, bereavement and complicated grief as well as discuss the difference between complicated and normal grief. It will also look at the factors that make our grief unique from one another. Because grief is something that 100% of the population experiences, we will discuss the diagnostic criteria and the ethical issues surrounding it's inclusion in the DSM5.
