“Life, Love and Loss: The New Normal”

by Brenda Whelan, LMHC

After a loss, we may try to move back to life as it was. However, this is not possible and we are called to define what has come to be known as our “New Normal”. Normalizing grief comes from understanding its impact as an up close and personal part of all life. Complicated grief, Prolonged Grief, Disenfranchised Grief and the stages of loss will be explored as they relate universally to change, life disturbances and death. This seminar will provide practical information about the application of interventions and strategies to incorporate within the therapeutic setting.
