Grief and loss show up in many of our clients in a multitude of ways. It’s much more than just death. We experience grief when we are diagnosed with a chronic illness, when we move, or when we go through a divorce.

This interactive training will cover grief and loss in adults, beginning with the foundation of different types of grief and different types of losses clients may experience throughout their lifespan. This training will cover what to expect during the grieving process with clients, how this is unique to each client’s experience, and best practices for working with clients in the clinical space who are grieving.

Clinicians will learn about the different types of grief and loss and how to differentiate them, cultural implications to consider, and interventions to use with clients who present with grief and loss, no matter what it looks like.

In this presentation, you will be able to leave this training with tools to utilize with clients in sessions, including working with and soothing our nervous system, a better understanding of grief presentations, and the importance of self-care and self-regulation when working with this population. So you as a clinician can be more prepared to address grief when working with diverse populations and situations, in order to effectively listen to your clients’ pain and help them rebuild fulfilling lives!


  • Differentiate between the different types of grief.
  • Discuss the “normal” grieving process and differential diagnoses between a mental health diagnosis.
  • Utilize interventions and techniques to promote healing.

Course materials are only available to enrolled students.
