Holding on and Letting Go: The Red Thread of Adult Bereavement
This webinar on adult bereavement will be comprised of a discussion of the breadth of feelings and behaviors that constitute "normal" grieving, the research on continuing bonds, construction of meaning, definitional problems with the term "complicated" mourning, case examples and interventions.
- Dispel the assumptions of what constitutes "normal grieving";
- Consider the recent research on mourning, especially the construct of continuing bonds, meaning reconstruction and the complexities of defining complicated mourning; and
- Describe practice-based and beginning evidence-based interventions.
