Understanding and Responding to Complicated Mourning


Complicated mourning is normal grief that has become stuck or made more complex by various circumstances, including traumatized or marginalized loss, personality or mental health issues, grief overload, and other factors.

Together we’ll explore important topics such as:

The distinction between “pathological” and “complicated” mourning

Sudden, violent death

The natural complications of suicide grief

Multiple loss and bereavement overload

Unmourned—or carried—grief

Depression in grief—What’s normal? What’s clinical depression?

Assessment model for complicated mourning

Family systems issues

The distinction between counseling and therapy

Growth-oriented companioning strategies

Those who would like to are encouraged to bring a case presentation to assist seminar participants in the learning process.

Participants will receive a copy of When Grief is Complicated.
