NEWCASTLE PUB DISCUSSION
Living with loss: Evidence-based treatment approaches for prolonged grief reactions
People vary greatly in how they respond to the death of a close loved one. Learn about the recent developments in CBT approaches for clients struggling with grief.
REGISTRATION FROM 6:30pm for a 7pm start (Enter and proceed to the rear courtyard for the pub discussion). Tickets are limited for this first pub discussion for Newcastle.
We will all experience the death of a close loved one during our lifetime and everyone responds differently.
The majority of people find ways of coping, however around 7-10% of bereaved individuals experience intense and distressing grief reactions that can persist unabated for years.
Encouragingly, there have been significant advances in how we understand these reactions and this has led to the development of effective grief-focused CBT treatment approaches.
During this pub discussion Fiona will discuss these recent advances and outline key grief-focused strategies. She will include important considerations for adapting CBT to the grief context, strategies for dealing with meaninglessness, how to integrate attachment based-techniques, and ways of helping clients re-envisage a future.
A pub discussion is a relaxed opportunity to observe a presentation on an interesting topic related to cognitive behavioural therapy. There are opportunities for the willing to engage in a discussion relating to the topic towards the end of the presentation.
