Description

The most effective therapists seem to be those individuals who are “integrative therapists.” Integrative therapists are those clinicians who have the ability to draw from a range of therapies based on their individual client’s needs. Becoming an integrative therapist will not only improve the quality of the therapy delivered by grief counselors, but it will also enhance the progress of their clients.

This course examines key concepts related to the field of bereavement. Topics will include: current conceptualization of the grief process, contexts of grieving, challenges in bereavement, specified therapeutic modalities and grief in a global perspective. The course will provide a foundation in bereavement providing specific strategies that will enable one’s ability to work more effectively with grieving individuals, couples, families or groups coping with loss. This session will also include an experiential component, an individual will be asked to volunteer and participate as a client for a grief counseling session. At the conclusion of the session, the audience and the client will have an opportunity to process the experience. Upon completion of the experiential component, a discussion of the session will follow.
