Loss, Grief, and Mourning: Beyond Kübler-Ross (6 CEs)

Materials composed and provided by Heather Servaty-Seib, Ph.D.

Instructional Level

Advanced

Course Description and Target Audience

Loss, grief, and mourning are concepts that can be applied to both death loss and non-death loss situations. This presentation will address the broader application of these concepts while also reviewing advancements in the field of grief and mourning, including innovative theory and current research critical for evidenced-based clinical work with grieving individuals. Other topics addressed will include type of losses (e.g., physical, psychosocial, secondary and disenfranchised), myths about grief, common patterns of grief, multidimensional nature of grief, distinction between grief and mourning, factors associated with grief reactions, grief within families, and strategies for distinguishing between normative and persistent complex bereavement (i.e., DSM-5). Suggestions for practice and relevant case examples will be integrated throughout.

The information offered is evidenced-based and is there for as accurate as possible based on current empirical research. The limits are those of the existing theories and research. The risk might be the possible overgeneralization of any recommendations offered–as grief is so unique to each individual person.

The target audience is mental health providers (advanced doctoral level psychology trainees, psychologists in practice, master’s level clinicians etc).

Learning Objectives

  • List common myths about grief
  • Identify innovative theories of grief and mourning and their application to practice

Play Therapy - 3 CEs
Click here to pay by credit card

*There is a 3.5% processing fee for all credit card payments.

Instructional Level

Intermediate — Builds upon the learner’s foundational knowledge, familiarity with the literature and/or experience in a content area. Programming at this level includes more depth than at a beginning level program. It could also serve as a refresher course for individuals who have background in a content area and are interested in learning more contemporary applications.

Course Description and Target Audience

This workshop will include hands-on learning and will provide attendees with tools that can be used with children regardless of their diagnoses. Play therapy is a powerful tool for addressing cognitive, behavioral, and emotional challenges. We use play to help clients better process their experiences and develop more effective strategies for managing their world. Using a Trauma-Focused based approach, I will describe how I use “storytelling” along with a variety of skill-building exercises to help kids learn to manage their big feelings and develop a sense of empowerment to make positive choices. Play therapy is evidenced-based, but there is no “one size fits all” or specific recipe, which means it will require insight, a good understanding of child development, and a willingness to be flexible. A play therapist must be well equipped with a toolbox full of a variety of interventions and skills. There are no known risks to this presentation.

The target audience is mental health providers (advanced doctoral level psychology trainees, psychologists in practice, master’s level clinicians, etc).

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will learn the importance of story-telling and how to facilitate story-telling in the play therapy session.
  • Participants will learn at least 5 interventions to use to teach kids how to identify and express feelings.
  • Participants will learn at least 5 interventions to teach kids the following concepts: coping, self-care, powerful choices, self-control, and positive self-talk.
  • Participants will be able to describe the “art of the relationship” and how it guides treatment.
  • Participants will be able to explain how interventions can encourage children to open up and communicate, work through trauma, and gain healing from their experiences.
