Grief Counselling and Grief Therapy have been strongly influenced over the last thirty years by the work of Elizabeth Kubler-Ross. However, over the last decade in particular new therapeutic perspectives have developed, which, along with recent research, have challenged some of the commonly held assumptions about grief & loss work.
In his detailed and informed presentation Paul Grantham provides you with understanding of the complex nature of grief, how different losses raise different issues, key factors determining a client's loss experience and contributions of new psychological theories to grief work.
He gives comprehensive advice on how to work effectively with complex grief problems: specific issues relating to traumatic and multiple losses, distinguishing normal" and "pathological" grief, working with "obsessional review" problems, managing recurrent anger and guilt within grief reactions.
While watching this DVD you will be able to observe Paul Grantham discussing real cases their outcomes and therapeutic interventions from brief solution techniques for working with grief reactions to mindfulness and positive therapy approaches.
