This workshop will focus on integrating EMDR therapy into the treatment of grief and mourning. The death of a loved one can be a time of unparalleled distress and adaptation to the loss can be very challenging. Even when uncomplicated, bereavement can result in significant psychological, behavioural, social, physical, and economic consequences (Osterweis, Solomon, & Green, 1984; Solomon & Rando, 2007, 2012, 2015).
EMDR therapy can be integrated into treatment of grief and mourning to process the distressing memories and present trigger that complicate the bereavement, and enable the mourner to assimilate and accommodate the loss.
- Understand grief and mourning, and factors that complicate the grief.
- Identify the processes necessary for assimilation and accommodation of loss.
- Understand attachment theory and its relation to grief and mourning.
- Understand how to integrate EMDR therapy into a treatment framework for grief and loss.
