DESCRIPTION
The loss of someone important in life can initiate a journey with many psychological ramifications.  This workshop examines some current theories and research on grief and mourning, including attachment, psychoanalytic and existential/social constructionist frameworks, with particular focus on
continuing versus relinquishing bonds with the deceased, constructing an individualized path through grief, the role of meaning-making in loss, the role of culture and religion/spirituality in mediating grief and mourning, and the losses and challenges that occur prior to the death of a loved one.
Creativity in the arts or in everyday life, and its possible uses in healing, will be discussed.  We will also discuss treatment of some specialized forms of grief such as disenfranchised grief, complicated grief,
and traumatic losses.


SPEAKER
Lorraine Mangione, PhD teaches doctoral students in the Department of Clinical Psychology at Antioch University New England. Interests include group therapy, psychodynamic and relational theory, clinical training and supervision, loss and grief, existentialism, women’s lifespan development and aging, and psychological meaning of Bruce Springsteen’s work. She publishes on loss and mourning, including father/daughter relationships, culture, creativity, and religion and spirituality.
