David Kessler On Grief and Grieving is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on May 14, 2019 at Four Points by Sheraton Bakersfield, Bakersfield, California, United States of America. Target Audience • Counselors • Social Workers • Psychologists • Nurses • Case Managers • Marriage & Family Therapists • Chaplains/Clergy Hospitals • Palliative Care Services • Other Mental Health Professionals Course Description: Grief and grieving. It’s traumatic. It’s awkward. It’s painful. As professionals, we are expected to have the right words at hand, the right actions to recommend, and the right response. Most of us fail shamefully due to a lack of grief emphasis in our training. Every client we will see will experience loss in their life. Join David Kessler, international grief expert, author and practitioner and transform your practice, your life, and learn the art of caring for the grieving. You will then know the right words and actions to truly be of help to the dying and grieving. Course Objectives: • Explore the dynamics of different types of grief and the healing processes associated with each. • Specify age appropriate grieving milestones that occur across the lifespan. • Articulate the somatic response to grief and identify how to manage residual grief in the body. • Consider why children are often the “forgotten grievers” and identify strategies for helping this population. • Analyze the efficacy of positive psychology interventions in treating grief. • Ascertain the relationship between traumatic events and grief as it relates to the healing process. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
