The Center for Prolonged Grief’s workshops focus on knowledge and skills needed to work with 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 one-day workshop is designed to provide a conceptual framework for understanding grief and adaptation to the death of a loved one generally and in relation to PGD. We include strategies and procedures for screening, diagnosis, and assessment of individuals with PGD, and discuss how to differentiate this condition from major depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. We provide an overview of prolonged grief disorder therapy (PGDT) and introduce some simple, practical procedures that you can use in your practice.
