Supporting Grief Work in Recovery




This course awards 1.5 CE Hours. 

Loss, mourning, and grief are an integral and unavoidable experience in human life. Substance use, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and physical and mental illness greatly increase the risk of unexpected, tragic, and traumatic losses, motivate behaviors to numb pain and distress, and multiply challenges to engaging in the important “work” of grieving. Stigma of substance use and guilt and shame, associated with accidental deaths from overdose and suicide, further complicate bereavement and loss in both active addiction and recovery. This workshop will review theories of bereavement and grief and explore practices for supporting recovery in bereaved people, whose grieving and recovery is complicated and compromised by addiction and depression.
