S01 - Grief 101: A Foundation for Professionals

  • 09/21/2023

There has always been a deep need for therapists, social workers, and counselors to provide grief and bereavement support to clients. And yet the majority of Masters and PhD programs in these fields do not require coursework in grief and bereavement. The landscape of modern grief theory has changed significantly over the last 50 years. However, despite this evolution, many clinicians are only familiar with the stage-based models that were the early foundations of grief theory. This leaves many counselors, social workers, and case managers working with those in grief without a strong foundation for understanding and supporting those in grief.

This session will provide clinicians a strong foundation for understanding grief. Using modern grief theory and research, this session will help participants to understand the most current conceptualizations of how individuals grieve, relevant types of grief, styles of grievers, and common cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and spiritual experiences faced by grievers.
