TREATMENT INTERVENTIONS FOR BEREAVEMENT
FOLLOWING A SUDDEN, TRAUMATIC, OR VIOLENT LOSS
Thursday, May 18th, 2017
Registration begins at 8:45am
The Chicago School of Professional Psychology 325 N. Wells, Chicago, IL 60654
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.
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.
