Rarely in individual graduate training programs are therapists exposed specifically to concepts of dealing with child death (miscarriage, stillbirth, terminal illness, murder, accidental death, suicide, etc). Many clinicians feel blind-sided when they are presented with a client who is faced with such great tragedy. This free program will provide a brief overview and begin the thought process of how to mindfully, ethically, and with the best practices available, treat such clients.
• Learn to define common mistakes that therapists make when working with newly-bereaved parents
• Define the values of the ATTEND Bereavement Care Model and consider how it could be used in personal practice
• Understand the importance of ritualization in the bereavement process and consider how clients might be helped by using ritual as a treatment objective
This program is free of charge and has been approved by the National Board for Certified Counselors and by the American Psychological Association. A total of 2.5 CE hours will be provided.
