The grief counselling workshop will take an in-depth look at both past and current models of grief counselling with an approach of learning new skills. This workshop will explore how to support the grieving person in their search for meaning and purpose related to their loss. Contemporary approaches such as attachment-based and narrative models that support post-traumatic growth, continuing bonds, and mindfulness will be presented from a perspective of how the therapist can use different tools in bereavement work. The use of expressive art, ritual, and story-telling will also be explored. Significant time will also be devoted to the importance of therapist self-awareness and peer consultation while providing grief counselling and support.
