Workshop Announcement “Good Grief: How to cope and move forward”
I am doing a full day workshop! I hope you will join me. In my practice as a clinical psychologist, I have learned so much about grief that I would like to share. We will study:
- the difficulty of grieving when we live in a death phobic and grief illiterate
- what we learn about grief from our families, culture, communities and religious
that we are taught about grief
- the idea that love and grief are inextricably linked.
Grief and loss are the price of living a connected life
- what is normal in grief (because most people worry that they aren't doing grief right)
- how grief affects your body
- how grief affects your brain
- the process of grief — it is more than the 5 stages of grief
- the new diagnosis called Prolonged Grief Disorder, and the controversy around
concept of ambiguous losses: those which are unclear, and difficult to
resolve, and how that connects to racism
to cope with grief and loss, and the role of self-compassion and empathy
myth of closure, and what we get instead of closure.
I have practical handouts about the worst and best things to say to someone in grief.
In this workshop, you will not be asked to share your personal
stories of grief.
All this happens in one day, and is filled with discussion, exercises, and stories
to optimize your learning. Hopefully, some laughter too. I would love you to
join me! Register online at MTS PD-Workshops.
