Workshop Description:
How  is  the  grief  process  impacted  when  someone  is  taken  away  suddenly,  traumatically,  or  violently?  Helping  our  client’s  navigate the grief journey following what appears to be a meaningless death can  be  difficult  for  both  the  clinician  and  the  client.  The  client’s  worldview has been altered, as they question everything they knew to be true. Who am I now? What does this mean? These are among a couple of the questions asked after a loss. Treatment interventions need to be tailored in order to assist a client. Jessica Hutchison will identify how bereavement following a sudden, traumatic, or violent loss  is  different  than  that  of  a  natural  death.  She  will  introduce  models of grief that will improve grief and loss supports for clients. Lastly, Jessica will introduce specific interventions to assist the newly bereaved with making sense out of what appears to be a senseless death.

Learning Objectives:
1. List four differences between bereavement following a natural loss and bereavement following a sudden, traumatic, or violent loss.
2. Describe the fundamental components of the Dual Process Model of Bereavement and the Two‐Track Model of Bereavement.
3. Identify how trauma impacts a client’s ability to integrate their loss.
4. Identify  effective  interventions  for  bereavement  following a sudden, traumatic or violent loss.
