March 13, 2021 - Uncover Grief: The Key to a New Ordinary with Edy Nathan

Date: Saturday, March 13, 2021
Time: 9:00 – 11:00a (mountain time) / 11:00a – 1:00p (eastern time)
Venue: Online via Zoom

Webinar participants will earn 2 CE credits (NBCC, APA, AASECT available) in collaboration with Advanced Mental Health Training Institute.

This workshop will teach you how to identify the non-linear aspects of grief, broadening the perspective of how to Uncover Grief from its natural hiding places: Shame, anxiety and anger. You will learn to integrate this perspective, giving clients a language about their own grief patterns. When grief presents as unrelated to the loss of a loved one, it’s harder to Uncover Grief and identify, engage with, and relieve how it affects each client. The hero’s journey will be discussed through the lens of the Eleven Phases™ of grief. Whether you are an experienced clinician or new to the field, a greater understanding of the self as you work with the polarities of grief can act as a supplement and intensify the work.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define and assess for disenfranchised grief as an objective to uncovering grief patterns and responses for the client.
  2. Describe the three main stages of the S/Hero’s Journey as they apply to the Eleven Phases™ of grief enabling the therapist to have further tools for assessment of grief.

Description

Uncover Grief and you uncover the hero’s journey, the lament of the hero, the depth of the dark cave which must be tangled with in order to figuratively dance with the discovery of the self in grief. The work of the therapist is to identify obstacles and offer interventions enabling a client to live the life for which they yearn. When you Uncover Grief you uncover yearning, desire, and emotional overwhelm. The response to grief is different for everyone. No one grieves the same way. Learn to identify and distinguish between disenfranchised grief and complicated grief. Rethink the Five Stages of Grief and expand current definitions of grief. Challenge how grief is conceptualized by you to increase your skillset in supporting a more differentiated client. Using interactive tools, from storytelling to dialogue writing, you can teach clients how to map the landscape of grief while identifying the archetypes which populate this slippery and potent journey. Like any therapeutic process, the therapist needs to understand how their own grief story impacts their ability to manage and tolerate the grief and ultimate trauma presented by the client. Assessment for grief patterns, best interventions, and understanding the stuck, ally and metamorphosis zones will impact your practice and strengthen your expertise in holding space for grief and its need to be identified.
