(Cost: $175) The grief counselling workshop will take an in-depth look at some of the past, current and newer models of grief counselling with an approach of learning new skills. The grief research of Collin Murray Parkes, Teresa Rando, William Worden, Robert Neimeyer, Ken Dolka, Charles Corr, Darcy Harris and others will be presented and explored. Grief assessment tools will be presented that assess where the client is at and what model of grief counselling is best suited. This course will explore how to help the grieving person search for meaning and purpose in their loss. Exciting therapies such as CBT, DBT and mindfulness will be presented from a perspective of how the therapist can use these tools in bereavement work. The use of expressive art, ritual and story-telling will also be explored. Significant time will also be devoted to the importance of therapist debriefing and defusing while providing grief counselling and support.
