Recognizing and Responding to Non-Death and Disenfranchised Loss

Recognizing and Responding to Non-Death and Disenfranchised Loss

Three (3) Hour Virtual Professional Development Workshop for Texas Psychologists, LPCs, LCSWs, and LMFTs

Friday, April 23, 2021  - 9:00 am to 12:15 pm


Workshop Description

Dr. Croom will present on the topic “Recognizing and Responding to Non-Death and Disenfranchised Loss.” The workshop will consider various types of intangible, non-finite, ambiguous, and disenfranchised losses that clients may experience. In the past year of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are few individuals that did not experience some form of non-death related loss and, for many, there have been cumulative losses. These losses, along with disenfranchised losses, are often more difficult for clients and providers to recognize, which can result in a missed opportunity for intervention.

Learning Objectives

  • Define various types of losses
  • Discover how to recognize non-death and disenfranchised losses and grief reactions
  • Describe interventions that can be helpful in facilitating grief reactions to non-death and disenfranchised losses
