Prolonged Grief Disorder therapy is an effective approach for individuals experiencing prolonged grief, offering proven efficacy in addressing their condition. Applying procedures from prolonged grief disorder treatment provides the clinician with a road map for a successful treatment. What does a therapist do when these procedures go awry? A case example will be presented to illustrate this dilemma and show exactly what a clinician did when this occurred.
As a result of attending this webinar, attendees will be able to answer the following questions:
- What obstacles can occur that develop roadblocks for PGD procedures?
- How can a therapist respond to effectively deal with these obstacles?
- What does success look like in PGDT?
