Treating Childhood Traumatic Grief Utilizing Components of Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

SIGN UP TODAY!!

Marcella Hayes, MA, LPC, Certified TF-CBT Therapist,  presents a two hour presentation on “Treating Childhood Traumatic Grief Utilizing Components of Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.” Therapists will be provided an interactive discussion on the process of utilizing components of Trauma-Focused CBT to adapt to Childhood Traumatic Grief (CTG) and create a Traumatic Grief Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TG-CBT) treatment plan. The purpose of this presentation is to aid clinicians in exploring options that would facilitate treating the traumatic aspects of the death event for client to proceed and engage in the grief focused work processing typical tasks for their natural grief process. Treating children with a traumatic event can be more difficult because the child with Childhood Traumatic Grief may be “Stuck” in the trauma and it interferes with the natural mourning process. By utilizing this model clinicians are able to assist in helping children and caregivers process the trauma in order for them to continue to heal and mourn naturally.

Objectives:

  • Natural Grief vs. Childhood Traumatic Grief (CTG)
  • Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) PRACTICE model components
  • Treatment implementation of CTG with components of TF-CBT to create a TG-CBT treatment plan

2 CEUs available for LPC and LMSW, please contact Leslie Wood at [email protected].

Helping the Grieving Student

This workshop is designed for professionals and caregivers and will focus on the following:

  • Understand how children grieve differently from adults.
  • Learn to recognize some of the common pitfalls to which bereaved youth are vulnerable, i.e. physical ailments, substance abuse, depression, increased tardiness and absences, poor school performance, anxiety disorders.
  • Identify some of the key differences between bereaved youth at different developmental stages. Distinguish between elementary, middle, and high school-aged students, to create effective classroom strategies that are age appropriate.
  • Discuss how our typical cultural responses to grief (i.e. fear of explicitly discussing the death and obscuring the facts with euphemisms, offering platitudes, ignoring the death) may hinder the student’s grief journey.
  • Learn how to replace typical responses with more helpful ones and how to offer compassionate companionship.
  • Explore ideas to support bereaved parents and caregivers so they may better understand and support their grieving student at home.

Registration: $35 and CEUs are available.
