Earn Credits for 1 Core Course for
all PI Certification Programmes
and 2 Case Studies toward
Certification in Grief Therapy as Meaning Reconstruction
Offered by the Portland Institute.
In the course of counselling, you may come across clients who experienced unwelcomed transitions in life or lost their loved ones through death. This training will equip you with the fundamental understanding of grief and loss as a meaning crisis from the meaning reconstruction framework, as well as how to assess grievers’ adaptation and needs for support in the aftermath. A tripartite model encompassing a trauma-informed perspective to the event story of loss, an attachment-informed perspective to the relationship story between the griever and the lost object, and a resilience-informed perspective to the personal story of self will be introduced. Specific attention would be given to various high-risk profiles and warning signs that indicate possible complications in grief, as well as how complications may manifest in different manners for different grievers.
