Prolonged Grief Workshop
About the Workshop
This one-hour intermediate workshop is designed to further practitioners’ knowledge of grief in a variety of forms according to the DSM-5-TR and ICD-11.

Protective factors will be explored as well as applicable strategies for assisting grievers through the healing process.

Learning Objectives:
      1. Define the distinction between Prolonged Grief, Major Depressive Disorder, Persistent Depressive Disorder, and Ambiguous Grief.
      2. Explore how cultural variances influence the presentation and perception of clinical symptomatology.
      3. Identify three therapeutic techniques to utilize in therapy.
