FREE March Webinars: Complicated Grief Parts I & II

Posted on Updated on

Hello All You Complex Creators and Open-Hearted Heroes,

I am pleased to announce the FREE registration links are now available for both Parts I and II of our online presentation on Complicated Grief, this month. 

The work of grief includes the meaning making of memories; the weaving of symbol into story. Like a thumbprint, no two persons are the same, and so it is with how we make meaning of our stories.

Complicated grief is a form of prolonged, unabating grief. Supported by empirical study, this diagnosis was added to the DSM V in 2013, and is distinctly different from “normal” grief and depression. Essential to treating complicated grief is an understanding of the underlying neural mechanisms and attachment issues.

Parts I and II of our online presentation offers an Introduction to theory and treatment of complicated grief with creative arts therapies, through the frame of mindfulness and attachment.

Much of the material discussed is derived from my first edited publication, Complicated Grief, Attachment and Art Therapy: Theory, Treatment and 14 Ready-to-Use Protocols, currently available for pre-order on Amazon, and will be released on April 21st, 2017.

      Hi Jenna,

      Thank you for your interest! Yes, I do record the webinars. The replays I sell as self study courses on my online school. Typically, I post the replays before the end of the month, at a discounted rate, for my list subscribers. If you are interested you can check out the school and subscribe to the list, to stay updated (there is no charge).
