Coping with Death & Dying in Therapy
In this program you will learn about special and timely topics related to death and loss - both from the perspectives of psychotherapy and how it may affect your professional life.
Death and loss have always been among the most difficult topics that therapists must face. Even though there is a literature on how to help clients deal with their loss, there is very little that offers guidelines to mental health professionals, who are not acknowledged grievers, to deal with this difficult subject.
