The Center for Complicated Grief was established to continue to advance knowledge of complicated grief and its treatment through scholarly thinking and research and to convey to the world knowledge, skills and research results relevant to recognition and treatment of CG. Our mission is to improve the lives of CG sufferers through professional training and education and public outreach to raise awareness of CG, reduce stigma and other misconceptions, and disseminate our short-term proven efficacious treatment. The Center for Complicated Grief’s workshops focus on knowledge and skills needed to work with complicated grief (CG) using a time-limited, targeted psychotherapy that has been tested and proven efficacious in three large NIMH-funded randomized controlled trials.

Below is information about our upcoming workshops. Level I: Help People Live with Loss January 12, 2018 9am - 5pm. This one-day workshop is designed to provide a conceptual framework for understanding grief and adaptation to loss generally and in relation to complicated grief (CG). The workshop focuses on strategies and procedures for screening, diagnosis and assessment of individuals with complicated grief and discussion of how to differentiate this condition from major depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. This workshop is intended for licensed professionals as well as graduate students. CEs available through NYSED, NASW and APA.

Participants will learn how to help clients get to know their grief, work with personalized aspirational goals, find meaningful ways to rejoin the social world, tell the story of the death and reflect on this story, revisit reminders of their loss and access living memories of the deceased.
