Three Simple Strategies from Complicated Grief Treatment

April 6 @ 10:45 am - 11:45 am
Overview Complicated Grief Treatment (CGT) is a time-limited, targeted psychotherapy with an average response rate of 70%, in three NIMH-funded clinical trials. CGT fosters processes that promote adaptation to loss using strategies that can seem counterintuitive. This presentation introduces core principles of CGT and explains their roots in scientific research.  We provide a framework for thinking about acute, integrated and complicated grief.  We describe three procedures used in CGT, explain how and why we use them and suggest ways to…

What is Complicated Grief?

April 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Overview Approximately five percent of children in the United States will experience the death of a parent or sibling before turning eighteen. This experience can have a wide range of concerning psychosocial impacts, including social isolation, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, and suicidality. However, the body of research on childhood and adolescent grief is quite limited, with an even greater void in the theoretical underpinnings necessary to provide efficacious clinical intervention and support for this population. The present study sought to…
