Ambiguous Grief & Non-Death Loss

January 30, 2021

Grief is the normal and natural reaction to any significant loss, whether that is a bereavement loss or a non-death loss. From coping with divorce or loss of job to losing a loved on to dementia, incarceration, foster care or addiction, therapists and other professionals are often supporting those dealing with these types of misunderstood grief. In this training, we will review the body of literature around ambiguous loss and non-finite loss, helping clinicians define and identify ambiguous loss, assess the impact on individuals and family systems, understand the nature of the relational stress of these losses, and provide techniques for promoting resilience in circumstances of ambiguous and non-death loss.

Learning Objectives

  • Differentiate other non-death losses, including non-finite loss and chronic sorrow, defining overlapping and distinguishing features.
  • Discuss the role and limitations of resilience in ambiguous loss and apply evidence-informed techniques for promoting resilience in circumstances of ambiguous and non-death loss.
  • Define the types of ambiguous loss and assess them impact of ambiguous loss stressors on individuals and family systems.
  • Identify therapeutic and psychoeducational interventions to ease the stress of ambiguous loss and provide individual, family, and community support for other non-death losses
