Course Description:
Please note: This is a pre-sale. The video will be available on June 24, 2024.

Losses that are unique to Immigrants and diverse cultural groups have been consistently overlooked, minimized or unacknowledged for years. As a result, many of our clients have experienced Disenfranchised Grief. This training will educate clinicians on the different categories of Disenfranchised Grief and how it relates to Immigrant and diverse cultural group losses. It is crucial that clinicians are able to conceptualize when Disenfranchised Grief has become “complicated” in our client’s life.

This workshop will provide a comprehensive overview of the common experiences immigrants have and diverse resources available for their clients. Clinicians will walk away with tools and a better understanding of challenges diverse cultures and subcultures experience to help create a safe space for clients to freely express and process their experiences. This training will empower clinicians to better support immigrant’s diverse struggles and recognize how Migratory Grief and Disenfranchised Grief are common experiences.
