How To Help Those Going Through Pain and Loss

How To Help Those Going Through Pain and Loss


Course Introduction


This course is eligible for 2 CEUs for Licensed Social Workers, Licensed Mental Health Counselors, Licensed Psychologists and Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselors (CASACs) in New York State.

Format: Self Study Seminar


When working with patients and clients who are experiencing pain and loss, what is really going on for them?

What is the context of their experience of loss?

How do they view the loss? How do we find this out?

How do we work with individuals who have pain and loss, and without having to get burned out? How do we maintain our presence to follow Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs to answer all these questions?

Join us for an exploration of what pain and loss means for our patients and clients and what to do next.
