Center for Connection Launches Invited Speaker Series

We are pleased to invite you to join us for a series of professional workshops, featuring expert speakers on a range of topics we feel are unique, highly relevant, and intrinsic to the work of mental health practitioners and related disciplines who share our desire to stay current and integrate interdisciplinary practice with the latest research in neuroscience. You'll also have the opportunity to learn more about what we do and meet many of the wonderful clinicians on our Team during a lunch time Meet and Greet with the Center for Connection. Light refreshments and coffee will be provided throughout the training experience, but lunch will be on your own, so please plan accordingly. Several local eateries are close by to grab a quick bite, or you may decide to bring lunch with you to make the most of the mid-day networking event.

The Many Faces of Grief: A Clinician's Toolbox to Facilitate Emotional Regulation Through the Grief Experience (6.0 CE Workshop)

Friday, May 10, 2019, 9:00am – 4:30pm

Losing a loved one is perhaps one of the greatest pains we experience in life. Long-term illness, accident, health crisis, addictive substance or suicide will influence the grieving process and may produce unique psychological consequences. For clinicians who work with children and adults grieving different types of loss, it is imperative to understand the physical, psychological and behavioral repercussions that often occur and implications for treatment. In this highly experiential 6.0 CE workshop, you'll develop a toolbox of clinical skills to help clients through mourning losses and facilitate growth after grief.

Learning Objectives: After the workshop participants will be able to:

  1. Identify different forms of grief: traumatic/complicated, disenfranchised, anticipatory, delayed, cumulative and compounded grief.

  2. Understand DSM differential diagnoses between grief, depression, traumatic grief, prolonged grief and complicated bereavement.

  3. Explain how the grief experience differs for children, teens and adults and for survivors of sudden versus prolonged death.

  4. Understand the major theories and tasks utilized in grief therapy.

  5. Develop awareness of evidence-based treatments used with different forms of grief.

  6. Describe major constructs within Post Traumatic Growth in grief therapy.
