Loss is inevitable. In life, we lose loved ones, relationships, opportunities, independence, cognitive functioning and physical abilities. Grief is the common process we experience as a result of our loss. The grieving process is different for each client – there is no “normal” time frame for healing. Emotional healing has been found to be effective in helping clients overcome grief and loss. Emotional healing is impacted by a client’s emotional stability, culture, socioeconomic status, spiritual beliefs and overall wellbeing. This workshop will explore the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. In addition, this workshop will focus on current treatment modalities, practical case studies and the presentation of skills and techniques to equip providers with the tools necessary to aid their clients with processing, understanding, effectively coping with, healing through and accepting their grief experience.
