Past Event : When Did Grief Get So Complicated? … and what practitioners need to know about it - Dr Susan Delaney

  

*** BOOKINGS ARE CLOSED FOR THIS EVENT ***

Event Title:   When Did Grief Get So Complicated? … and what  practitioners need to know about it

Description:  

The debate continues amongst practitioners about whether grief should ever be considered a disorder; many practitioners believe that grief is a normal response to loss and should not be medicalised whilst others believe that grief can become disabling and may need specialist intervention. This talk will consider the current controversy and will discuss the evidence for a complicated grief disorder. Information on recognising when grief has become complicated will be offered along with a discussion of international treatment initiatives and an update on what is happening in Ireland and the UK.

 

Speaker: Susan Delaney

Welcome to The Professional Practitioner Portal

PPS Logo"The Professional Practitioner" portal is an online resource dedicated to promoting high standards of professional practice by practitioners in the talking and listening therapy services.  The portal has been created by the Psychologists Protection Society Trust, a defence organisation, run for the benefit of members who are counsellors, psychologists and psychotherapists.  The main purpose of The Psychologists Protection Society is to provide members with assistance when complaints are received from clients and other professional protection matters. The Trust however also has a further objective: to help members avoid problems where possible, by providing education and advice to members and to promote high standards of professional practice.  

This portal contains a variety of content, including articles, events, CPD activities, documents from the PPS archives, etc which are available to all members.  We will add new content from time to time so it is worth "bookmarking" this page.  

It is hoped members will find the content thought-provoking and members will be encouraged to think more about areas of their professional practice where problems can arise and whether or not these problems can be avoided.  If you are not a member of The Psychologists Protection Society and would like to join us, please visit www.ppstrust.org to find out more.
