This 90-minute seminar will examine both normal and complicated grief. The course will increase your skill set and understanding of the therapeutic complexities when working with clients who are struggling with this existential human process. We will look at ways complicated grief is qualitatively different and guide you in therapeutic interventions to help you help your clients move through grief in a healthy way.

1) Learn specific therapeutic steps to help your clients manage grief in healthy ways.

2) Increase your skill set working with and understanding the therapeutic complexities of complicated grief.

3) Learn skills to help manage yourself when grief is triggered in you.
