All clients enter therapeutic relationships due to loss. These losses can be specifically related to death and dying or other issues that may not be immediately recognized as loss. Chronic illness, disabling conditions, or losses related to other physical or emotional issues are oftentimes not acknowledged as loss and consequently are classified as disenfranchised grief. The goal of treatment is to create an emotional, versus intellectual, approach to this reaction. We do not know exactly what the grieving client is experiencing, even if we have in the past or present experienced something similar, however we can bear witness to their struggle. An empathy-based approach, where we are fully present is essential in creating an environment for their healing to take place. Respecting their silence, respecting their journey, and respecting their timetable tells them we will be there with them.
This training aims to support mental health staff in using evidence-informed and culturally appropriate approaches to common illness-related challenges resulting in myriad types of loss that confront all clients. Topics will include acute health crises, navigating health, crises management of chronic conditions.
