    About the Lunch & Learn Program


    The Lunch and Learn Speaker Series was created in 2017 in response to feedback from members who participated in our membership opinion survey. Every other month, we gather in Pasadena. Each meeting features a 20-25 minute program covering various topics relevant to our profession. During this luncheon, members have the opportunity to socialize and network, promote their businesses and, of course, enjoy a delicious meal.

    Program Description
    The loss of a loved one is perhaps one of the greatest pains we experience as humans. When a loved one dies in a sudden manner from an accident, health crisis, addictive substance or suicide, traumatic grief may result. Traumatic grief often complicates the bereavement process and produces unique psychological consequences. For clinicians who work with individuals grieving the death of a loved one, it is imperative to understand the different physical, psychological and behavioral repercussions that often occur. The following workshop will provide participants with a basic understanding of traumatic grief, complicated bereavement and treatment challenges in order to facilitate mourning within the context of trauma. The workshop will also explore how to facilitate post traumatic growth in clinical practice.

    Learning Objectives

    At the end of the presentation participants will:

    1. Define what constitutes traumatic grief and how the traumatic grief experience differs from non-traumatic grief.  

    2. Understand the DSM differential between grief, traumatic grief, prolonged grief and complicated bereavement.

    3. Develop an awareness of evidence-based treatments used with traumatic grief and complicated bereavement.

    4. Identify community and national resources available to clients for traumatic grief.

    5. Conceptualize major constructs within Post Traumatic Growth.
