Description

Appropriate Clinical Responses to Grief & Bereavement Reactions Are Crucial
It is estimated that approximately 10-15% of those experiencing grief and bereavement reactions actually are identified to have severe reactions to the loss. Appropriate responses to those experiencing symptomatology due to a loss, whether it is defined as a more typical grief reaction or something more severe, are essential to achieving satisfactory outcomes for the clients.

This webinar's purpose is to assist clinicians in identifying a grief reaction and developing appropriate treatment strategies. The speaker grounds the entire presentation in the latest research and diagnostic criteria found in the DSM-5®. Items covered include the distinctions between bereavement and complicated grief, the predictors for positive outcomes of bereavement counseling, and action steps to implement in helping clients achieve ongoing recovery from their losses.
