comforting atmosphere and environment

hands-on activities very helpful in understanding processes
I’ve always thought of continuing bonds as an ‘a-ha’ grief concept.
Appreciate why push to “let go”, to “get over your loss” and to “move on” has finally been accepted as unhelpful strategies when working through loss and grief. The Continuing Bonds Theory (Klass , Silverman & Nickman 1996) has paved new understandings for the importance of connecting with ones’ loss and developing a new relationship with the loss. Although physically absent the loved one remains present in the life of the bereaved.
This one day workshop will explore this Continuing Bonds Theory of loss and grief. You will have opportunities to creatively experience the skills of connecting to our loss through creative expressions such as art and creative writing. No experience in art is necessary, however an openness to creative processes is encouraged. At the end of the day you will have some creative activities and processes in your tool box that will help your clients to connect to their loss in significant ways and bring further healing.
All those working with issues of grief and loss. Psychologists, social workers, counsellors, bereavement counsellors, case workers, psychotherapists, pastoral workers, other allied health professionals and students of these disciplines. No artistic experience or skill is necessary. Provisional psychologists can attend at student rates.
Beate brings over 30 years of experience of training and social work specialising in grief and loss education/counselling, transition counselling and applied mindfulness. She knows the personal and professional benefits of creative therapy practices that she skilfully shares.
