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 workshop is the second step in pursuing CGT training through the Center.
In this 2-day workshop you learn about complicated grief treatment, the proven efficacious, 16-session psychotherapy developed to identify and resolve complications of grief and facilitate adaptation to loss. The workshop includes video and/or live demonstrations of techniques and role-play exercises to help you learn the basics of the treatment.
In this workshop, you will learn:
- 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 are encouraged to pursue case consultation to develop essential skills and competencies to administer CGT.
