Grief Treatment: Current Evidence-Based Approaches to Care Across the Lifespan is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Mar 04, 2020 at DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel Lexington, Lexington, Kentucky, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.3 contact hours / 6.25 continuing education clock hours and 6.25 participant hours. Target Audience: • Counselors • Social Workers • Psychologists • Case Managers • Marriage & Family Therapists • Nurses • Chaplains/Clergy • Nursing Home Administrators • Other Mental Health Professionals Course Description: The need for a revolution in the way mental health providers approach grievers is on the rise. The “quick fix” nature of American culture, a death-denying attitude and an outdated adherence to stage theories has created an epidemic for grievers. The potential is high to include a formalized diagnosis for Prolonged Grief Disorder in the next revision of the DSM-5®. If this occurs, clinicians will have an even greater responsibility to understand treatment modalities, assessment tools and diagnostic criteria related to grief. Not long ago in American history, those in mourning would be quick to find comfort from family and faith. Yet, as our society shifts away from a faith-orientation and loneliness continues to escalate, clinicians have the unique opportunity to stand in the gap of this crisis and provide a respite for grieving people of all ages. This training provides fast and unique treatment tools that can be used in a wide variety of circumstances for grievers of all ages. The new complicated Grief Treatment Model will also be examined for use with individuals facing a more persistent response to grief. This treatment has been studied to have a significantly higher response rate than interpersonal psychotherapy. Objectives: • Examine current models of grief theory that go beyond the five stages and the treatment implications of each model. • Explain the unique experience created by different types of loss in relation to assessment and treatment planning. • Describe a client’s understanding of death and response to grief from a developmental perspective across the lifespan. • Identify how grief impacts the family system (individually and together), and how to better equip them to support each other in grief. • Evaluate current and cutting-edge modalities used to treat typical and complicated grief in the clinical setting. • Identify specific creative counseling interventions that engage the individual, couple or family in the process of grief. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
