This workshop is designed for clinicians to further develop an understanding of the complexity of death and grief for clients and families. Central in these ideas is an overview of grief theories, thanatology and complicated bereavement. Emphasis will be placed on Attachment theory and its relationship to loss as well as stages of grief and mourning. A series of case illustrations demonstrating healthy mourning and .complex mourning will be described. Role plays will be practiced to further enhance skills in listening to the difficulties grief presents in a culture that is “allergic” and fearful of loss and its legacy.
