Working with Ambiguous Loss
July 19, 2019 @ 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM
This training supports participants in distinguishing ambiguous loss (e.g. loss through incarceration, deportation, family separation, etc.) from other forms of loss and grief, and explains the impact that these can have on children’s and adolescent’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Strategies and approaches specific for working with children, families and adolescents impacted by ambiguous loss will be discussed. At the end of this training, participants will have learned to: distinguish ambiguous loss from other forms of loss and bereavement; recognize the impact of these types of losses on children, adolescents and families; identify strategies for supporting children, adolescents and families through these types of losses; develop strategies for self-care. Teaching methods will include didactic teaching, small group activities, experiential learning, role plays and group discussion.
