New – Working with Anticipatory and Existential Loss: Mapping a New Future
A workshop looking at the circumstances, settings and types of anticipatory loss and how to work with it.
Clients may experience a sense of loss as a result of a range of experiences that can be difficult to navigate. This kind of loss can be related to a diagnosis of a terminal illness of oneself or a loved one. However, it can be experienced with relationship breakdown, loss of job, retirement, loss of a loved one, loss of health.
This workshop looks at the different understandings of anticipatory loss, the circumstances, settings and types of anticipatory loss and different models of how this impacts on clients and how to work with it. It looks at loss in its widest sense and provides a space to explore our own experiences of working with loss.
We will cover:
- Types of anticipatory loss and how it affects clients
- Emotional responses to anticipatory loss and the challenges that creates for clients
- Different models of anticipatory loss and the insight they can provide
- Working through distress, facing the loss and building acceptance
- How to work with clients to map a new version of their future
Loss is something we all face and understanding how it may impact clients gives us as therapists the opportunity to help clients build a new understanding of their own.
This workshop is facilitated by Ali West and provides 6 CPD points.
