Death and Loss: Grief as an Experience Not an Event
Professional training with CE credits
Death is the other side of life. It will touch all of us at some point in life, and likely many, many times. Sometimes when talking about death, we use the language of current popular psychology and self help and speak of “letting go” and “finding closure,” phrases that often feel empty to our clients, and sometimes even to ourselves as professionals.
In this interactive training, conducted by Karen Carnabucci, LCSW, TEP, we will look at death, loss and grief not as an event, but as an experience and demonstrate how experiential methods can support the process of healing, emotional restoration and transformation.
The experiential approach – using psychodrama, Family Constellations, mindfulness, art making and simple ritual – promises to create a greater sense of awareness and understanding within our clients and ourselves.
In this training, you will learn:
