Healing Milestones: A Webinar on Complicated Grief
November 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
“Healing Milestones: Recognizing Complicated Grief,” a live, one-hour webinar that explores the concept of complicated grief, particularly after losing a loved one to suicide.
The webinar is intended for suicide loss survivors, as well as support group facilitators.
Viewers will be encouraged to think of their own journey in adapting to suicide loss as a process of healing milestones. Attendees will learn how to recognize complicated grief, in which painful emotions are so long lasting and severe that the person has trouble recovering from a loss and resuming their own life. Participants will also learn the risk factors associated with complicated grief, as well as how to identify thoughts, feelings and behaviors that can derail the healthy process of grieving.
The event will be hosted by:
Dr. M. Katherine Shear, M.D., the Marion E. Kenworthy Professor of Psychiatry and founding Director of the Center for Complicated Grief at Columbia School of Social Work
Wendy M. Resnick, R.N., M.S., C.S., Clinical Nurse Specialist in Psychiatric Nursing, and co-founder of The Depression and Related Affective Disorders Association (DRADA)
Colleen Bloom, M.S.W., Manager of the Center for Complicated Grief
