Grief Therapy as Meaning Reconstruction – Madrid, June 2020

– POSTPONED – 3 day workshop in Madrid with Robert A. Neimeyer, Ph.D.

Dates pending scheduling

Madrid, Spain

The current situation of Pandemic for Covid19 and the necessary movement restriction and assembly actions force us to postpone the training scheduled for June in Madrid.

We will try to make this Portland Institute (Dr. Robert A. Neimeyer) training available again in Madrid, as soon as the situation becomes possible.

About the program

This Module includes special skills for dealing with grief and its complications through viewing actual videos of work with clients, observing live demonstrations, and hands-on training with selected methods and therapeutic techniques for use with a wide range of grieving clients.
Participants will learn a range of narrative, reflective and dialogical procedures, from a constructivist approach, in both death and bereavement losses:
– rebuild a symbolic bond with the deceased, addressing unresolved issues in the relationship, identifying subtle and significant sources of both loss and growth in their own lives and those of their clients, and
– deepening work with implicit emotions as well as internal positioning through methods of expression, body work and creative writing.

This training will be conducted in English with Spanish translation

Portland Institute Accreditation

Upon completion of each Program, you will be certified by the Portland Institute for Loss and Transition.
