GriefCorner: New Healing Through Loss Workshop March 15, 2013.

New Healing Through Loss Workshop March 15, 2013.

I’m very excited about a new workshop on “best practices for working with grieving children, adolescents and adults” that I will be presenting with several colleagues on March 15th in Columbia, MD. 6 CE’s will be available for psychologists, social workers, licensed professional counselors and certified professional chaplains (APC).

For details:   Click on New Workshop link.

This workshop is an opportunity to expand and  explore some of our best practices for helping children, adolescents and adults and also look at the role of the Internet in serving the needs of grieving people. A look at self as griever, the underlying function of human grief and some illustrative cases will be included. I will be joined in this presentation by Dr. Alison Dunton - child psychologist and Dr. Erin Stoll - adolescent and young adult psychologist. 

This workshop is co-sponsored by our new Jeffreys Institute For the Study of Loss and Bereavement and the Maryland Psychological Association. The Maryland Psychological Association is approved by the American Psychological Association to offer continuing education for psychologists and by the Maryland Board of Social Work Examiners as a sponsor of continuing education.  The Maryland Psychological Association maintains responsibility for the program and its content.
In addition to the CE's I mentioned earlier, The Association For Death Education and Counseling has deemed this program as counting towards the continuing education requirements for the ADEC CT and FT programs.

The Jeffreys Institute For the Study of Loss and Bereavement is a training program for licensed mental health practitioners which will concentrate self awareness, grief knowledge base and clinical skill development. More on the future Institute programs in a future blog.
