FOCUS:

The Center for Complicated Grief’s workshops focus on the knowledge and skills needed to work with complicated grief/prolonged grief disorder (PGD) using a time-limited, targeted psychotherapy that has been tested and proven efficacious in three large NIMH-funded randomized controlled trials.

This two-day workshop covers the principles and practice of a 16-session treatment complicated grief therapy/prolonged grief disorder therapy (PGDT). Practitioners will learn how to

  • implement PGDT using active empathic listening, brief personalized interventions, companionship alliance, and a series of targeted procedures
  • use a grief monitoring diary to help clients understand and accept grief and optimize their ability to manage emotional pain
  • help clients think about the future and strengthen relationships with loved ones and others in their community
  • help clients tell the story of the death, live with reminders, and connect with memories of the deceased.

The workshop will run from 9:00a.m. to 5:00p.m. on both Friday and Saturday. Video examples will be used to demonstrate core treatment procedures. Please note that PGD assessment and differential diagnosis will not be covered in this workshop.
