The faculty at the Center for Complicated Grief offers this workshop covering principles, and practice of a 16-session treatment complicated grief therapy (CGT) that you can use for clients with complicated grief. You will learn how to implement CGT using active empathic listening, brief personalized interventions, a Sherpa-like 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. You will find the course to be highly interactive with brief faculty presentations. In addition to group discussions we will have extensive in-depth discussion of video examples of core treatment procedures.

Please note that CG assessment and differential diagnosis will not be covered in this workshop. This is a focus of The Big Picture: CGT Principles and Procedures.
