Ethics & Grief Workshops | Resilience: Coping with Life’s Many Transitions and Losses
Attend Both Ethics & Grief Workshops and Save!
Most counseling centers around helping people heal and grow after experiencing some kind of loss: loss of self-worth, innocence, a loved one, a dream, a job, or losses due to substance abuse, aging, trauma or crisis. This workshop is designed for those experiencing a transition or loss personally as well as for mental health practitioners who work with clients in these situations. Upon completion, you will know how to:
- Explain the differences between “intuitive grievers” (feeling-centered people) and “instrumental grievers” (cognitive-centered or action-centered people) and how they grieve differently and need to be counseled differently.
- Discuss the three important areas of assessment that need to be covered before counseling begins.
- Use care plan techniques that have minimal paperwork but still provide multiple measurable outcomes.
- Apply appropriate tools to help intuitive grievers and instrumental grievers.
- Explain to others how to use new tools that help clients disclose quickly and deeply (e.g.”virtual dream therapy”).
Who Should Attend:
- Social Workers
- Marriage & Family Therapists
- Nurses Educators
