Supporting Bereaved Clients with Complex Needs: Responding to Complicated Grief

Defining and, therefore, diagnosing complicated grief often leaves practitioners feeling confused and overwhelmed. This results in differing levels of anxiety about working with clients with complex needs who present with symptoms consistent with complicated grief. What most practitioners do agree on is that complicated grief often presents as grief that doesn’t budge; leaving the bereaved feeling like it is impossible to move on from their grief and the practitioners feeling ‘stuck’ and unable to help their clients.

This workshop will introduce practitioners to theories of complicated grief as well as providing an introduction to Complicated Grief Treatment.

At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • understand the symptoms and clinical presentation of complicated grief
  • determine the differences between complicated grief, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder
  • recognise and assess for complicated grief
  • understand the procedures and processes involved in Complicated Grief Treatment
  • identify and implement the key strategies and techniques used in Complicated Grief Treatment.
