UW-Green Bay sponsors Grief Therapy symposium
The UW-Green Bay Institute on Dying, Death and Bereavement is sponsoring a daylong symposium on Strategies of Grief Therapy: A Meaning Reconstruction Approach, on Dec. 4, at the University Union.
The annual workshop will focus on four types of strategies, including: narrative work, continuing bonds work, imagery work and grief work. Each type of therapeutic strategy engages a client’s words and images to reconstruct their relationship to the deceased, and to reveal obstacles to reconstruction.
It is a program designed for social workers, licensed professional counselors, funeral home directors, psychologists, pastoral associates, clergy, nurses and other human services professionals.
Keynote presenter, Robert Neimeyer, is an internationally recognized author and researcher in the field of dying, death and bereavement, and past president of the Association for Death Education and Counseling (ADEC).
The program, which is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the University Union, is sponsored by the Northeast Wisconsin Alliance for Social Work Continuing Education, a partnership between UW-Green Bay and UW-Oshkosh. Heartland Home Health and Hospice has partially underwritten conference workshop costs.
The conference fee is $109, including registration, lunch, breaks, materials and a CEU/CEH certificate.
