Loss is a common contributor to issues that motivate individuals to seek counseling, yet practicing counselors receive minimal training in how to provide grief support or counseling. The Kubler-Ross model (D.A.B.D.A.) is no longer the preferred model for grief counseling. We will consider non-death related losses, the importance of understanding loss from within the client’s contextual environment, and the significance of our own attitudes and values about loss and death.

Loss is a common contributor to issues that motivate individuals to seek counseling, yet practicing mental health and school counselors receive minimal training in how to provide grief support or counseling. Further, counselors are often uncomfortable in addressing grief with their clients, partially because the grieving client may remind us of our own losses or mortality. The Kubler-Ross model (D.A.B.D.A.) is no longer the preferred model for grief counseling. There are several newer evidence-based theories beyond stage and task models which will be discussed during the webinar. We will also consider non-death related losses, the importance of understanding loss from within the client’s contextual environment, and the significance of our own attitudes and values about loss and death.

Learning Objectives:

Attendees will:
1. Be able to acquire and understand the need for grief education for counselors.
2. Be able to distinguish how grief is experienced differently by individuals from different cultural backgrounds.
3. Be able to apply 3 interventions to use with clients experiencing grief and loss.
