Counseling Interventions for Complex Situations: Differentiating Grief, Sadness & Depression Webinar

Thursday, July 29, 2021 at 3:00pm to Thursday, July 29, 2021 at 4:30pm Webinar/Teleconference
Let’s move beyond “supportive” and focus on providing specific counseling interventions that fit the person’s risk level. Learn how to assess if someone is low-, medium-, or high-risk and which framework will ensure the highest level of psychological care.

Description

AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:

  • Differentiate grief and sadness from depression
  • Distinguish support from counseling
  • Discuss one method to conduct a bereavement risk assessment
  • List risk factors that require a skilled-counseling approach beginning at admission
  • Explain the use of two theoretical counseling frameworks to provide grief counseling specifically in complex situations

WEBINAR DETAILS

Conducting a bereavement risk assessment at the time of hospice admission is not only integral to providing quality care – it’s also required. It is imperative that qualified staff assess and provide risk-level-specific counseling interventions through the hospice stay and following death. Are your team members providing appropriate high-risk counseling interventions? Being “supportive” is clearly not adequate for someone who is high risk, but what is? This webinar will focus on identifying risks related to complex situations and then apply specific counseling interventions to situation examples.
