Working with a client who is experiencing illness is challenging. Working with a client whose child is dying is challenging. Working with a client who lost their job and has no idea how to move forward is challenging. How do we as practitioners work with death, illness, and loss? It is a huge topic and much to explore. This 3 hour workshop will introduce you to what it can be like to work with death, illness and loss in the therapeutic space.
It uses case examples to illustrate ways of working with this client population. It looks at types of losses, this could range from losing a job to losing a milestone that was not achieved, stages of grief, tasks of mourning, culture and grief, language used in grief, firsts in the grieving process, and there is an experiential exercise. We also look at assumptions made with this client population.
