Conference Objectives are: • Articulate current models for conceptualizing grief and how these influence treatment planning. • Analyze and differentiate clinical symptoms to diagnose grief clients appropriately. • Implement functional interventions for grief counseling adaptable to use with any clients. • Demonstrate three new interventions to use with bereaved clients. • Determine when grief has become “complicated” and develop an appropriate treatment strategy. • Develop strategies of self-awareness and self-care for grief counselors as it relates to clinical practice.
