Navigating through Loss and Grief: How Continuing Bonds, Creativity, Religion/Spirituality and Culture Contribute to the Journey
Lorraine Mangione, Ph.D.
3 CE Credits
Overview: The loss of someone important can initiate a journey with many psychological ramifications. This workshop examines some current theories and research on grief and mourning; including attachment, psychoanalytic, and existential frameworks. The workshop also utilizes some of the author’s research on daughters grieving their dads to encourage psychologists in developing their clinical approach to working with clients’ grief and loss.
Individuals in attendance will be able to:
Articulate an approach to loss that includes “continuing bond and connections”.
Identify some components of their explicit and implicit current and evolving approaches to loss and grief.
See the role that culture may play in the experience of loss and grief.
