In the course of counselling, you may come across clients who experienced unwelcome transitions in life or lost their loved ones through death.  This training will equip you with the fundamental understanding of grief and its complications, as well as how to assess one's coping and discern if such coping is considered as adaptive.  Specific attention will be given to identification of various high-risk groups and how complications in the grief journey may manifest in different forms. 


  • Develop essential skills in assessing the griever’s coping and identifying high-risk groups

  • Differentiate complications in grief from adaptive coping with grief


  • An integrative assessment framework for grief

  • Identification of high-risk groups and multifaceted manifestation of complications in grief

  • Formulation of assessment and therapeutic directions based on an integrative model for grief and loss
