This 3-day series introduces the constructivist, narrative perspective, according to which grief requires an attempt to reaffirm or reconstruct a world of meaning that has been challenged by the loss.  The series includes the Core Courses addressing grief and its complications, providing a theoretical frame of grief therapy, and conveying practical and research informed strategies for facilitating meaning reconstruction.  Participants will learn trauma-informed interventions relevant to processing the event story of loss and attachment-informed interventions related to accessing the back story of the relationship and reconstructing the symbolic bond.
