6 CE Contact Hours
Every day we touch the lives of those who have experienced grief and loss. We may be working with the children, teens, families, or the adults impacted by losses within their families. In this practical and interactive workshop, we’ll consider types of losses, the influence of developmental and age specific characteristics, hierarchy of needs as it relates to loss, influential factors within the grief process, disenfranchised grief, complicated grief and mental disorders commonly associated with grief. This workshop will promote personal awareness, practical ideas and skill development to equip you to effectively help those impacted by grief and loss. If you work with children, teens, adults or families in schools, hospitals, community agencies, or other care facilities, this workshop will help sharpen your skills and increase your capacity for compassionate relationships.
