This seminar is designed for: Physicians, Nurses, Social Workers, Child Life Specialists, Counselors, Educators, Psychologists, Hospice Personnel, Clergy, Chaplains, Lay Ministers, and others who care for bereaved adults, couples, children, teens, and families (many of whom are likely also coping with stress and anxiety).

 

Our Speaker 

Michelle A Post, MA, LMFT is a licensed mental health provider for CA residents and a national & international life strategist, business coach, and grief coach (virtual telehealth services). She has specialized in grief, loss, trauma, anxiety, and stress management since 2002 and travels nationally and internationally to teach other professionals. In 2019, Michelle left her corporate healthcare management role to launch her own international business to coach others via live & online trainings, self-care retreats, teach, consult, and provide expert witness services.

 

Purpose

During this global pandemic, elements of stress and trauma have exacerbated what might have been the most benign and normal grief processes. Professional caregivers can benefit from additional tools and interventions to support the discharge of clients' emotions, grief, and stress and teach clients healthy coping skills during a time that is anything but "normal".

 

In her work with grieving children, teens, adults, couples, and families, Ms. Post has seen families forced to adjust to deaths with delayed, changed, interrupted, and complicated goodbye processes and mourning rituals. Many times, the bereaved have been without the typical or normal support from their personal or professional communities.

 

In this seminar, with the aid of the research of J. William Worden, Ph.D., personal and professional experiences, Ms. Post will lead beginner and seasoned caregiving professionals to develop a clear understanding of normal grief and anxiety responses during pandemic times and identify "red flag" reactions that require a higher level of care. In addition, participants will leave with sharpened skills, tools, and interventions to care for the grieving and stressed hearts of clients during this pandemic time.

 

Objectives

At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to...

  • Identify normal grief responses for different developmental ages of children, teens, and adults.

  • Assess "red-flag" grief responses that may indicate a higher level of care.

  • Teach a proven research-based grief and loss model to help families conceptualize the grief process.

  • Utilize various instruments to assess depression, anxiety, and/or stress.

  • Apply interventions and tools to engage grieving and stressed clients in their emotional discharge.

  • Employ a guide to help families develop good coping skills for grief, stress, and anxiety management.
