Workshop Day Two: Clinical Implications and Supportive Therapies for Grieving Individuals 

In the context of a supportive relationship, clinicians often draw upon therapeutic “tools” and techniques that may be helpful in facilitating the grieving process of those in their care. There are many diverse ways for bereaved individuals to share their thoughts, feelings, and stories, and having a variety of approaches can help to match the needs of clients with techniques that are congruent with their way of being in the world. In this workshop, we will explore differing ways of working with clients and their grief in the context of cultivating focus and presence when working with grieving individuals whose lives are punctuated by intensity, uncertainty, and pain. The context of these approaches will be grounded in compassion-based therapies, which can be helpful to individuals who are suffering from intense grief. The role of compassion-based approaches for the clinician’s self care will also be introduced.

Learning Objectives:
Understand the role of presence in the therapeutic relationship with grieving individuals.
Consider ways to cultivate the ability to focus, regulate emotion, and cultivate distress tolerance for clinicians who work with clients who are suffering.
Explore creative approaches to supporting and facilitating the expression of grief.
Identify different possible therapeutic approaches with diverse clients.
Examine the role of compassionate response for both professionals and the grieving individuals that they support.
