Center for Complicated Grief

The death of a loved one is a uniquely challenging life experience -- one of the most difficult a person can face -- yet most people find a way to come to terms with the loss, reshape their relationship with the person who died and restore a sense of meaning and purpose in their own lives. But, for about seven percent of bereaved people mourning is derailed, leading to development of complicated grief (CG). CG is a recently described syndrome included in DSM-5 and proposed for inclusion in ICD-11.

The purpose of this webinar is to describe CG and outline the core modules of complicated grief treatment, the time-limited, targeted psychotherapy that has been tested and proven efficacious in three NIMH-funded randomized controlled trials.

This webinar is designed to help participants

  1. recognize and assess for CG.
  2. describe the overall objectives and structure of complicated grief treatment.
