The Center for Complicated Grief offers workshops that focus on self-awareness, knowledge and skills needed to work with complicated grief, a debilitating bereavement-related condition diagnosed as an adjustment disorder in DSM-5. This two-day workshop is the second step in pursuing training in Complicated Grief Treatment (CGT) through the Center. It is intended for any licensed mental health professional who wants to use CGT to treat bereaved people. NOTE: Level 1 is a prerequisite for Level 2.
In this two-day workshop, you will learn about CGT, the targeted psychotherapy proven efficacious in three National Institute of Mental Health-funded randomized controlled trials. The training includes video and/or live demonstrations of techniques and role-play exercises to help you learn the basics of the treatment.
Workshop components include:
- An overview of the organizational framework of CGT.
- A description of the therapist as Sherpa guide.
- An explanation of core elements of CGT and their rationale.
- A review of the evidence behind CGT.
Following completion, you will be encouraged to pursue case consultation to develop essential skills and competencies to administer CGT.
