Columbia University’s Center for Prolonged Grief offers workshops that build the knowledge and skills needed to work with Prolonged Grief Disorder (PGD) using a short-term, adaptation-focused psychotherapy that’s been proven efficacious in three large NIMH-funded randomized controlled trials.
In this two-day (Feb 25-26) workshop, you will learn how to implement PGDT using active empathic listening, brief personalized interventions, companionship alliance, and a series of targeted procedures. You will learn how to use a grief monitoring diary to help clients understand and accept grief and optimize their ability to manage emotional pain. You will learn to help clients think about the future and strengthen relationships with loved ones and others in their community. With this background, you will learn how to help clients tell the story of the death, live with reminders and connect with memories of the deceased. Video examples will be used to demonstrate core treatment procedures.
