SW CEU program: Living with Chronic Illness and Transplant: A Grief and Loss Perspective

Jan 11, 2023 1-3PM EST

Register Here

This training will introduce the Tripartite Model of Grief Therapy as Meaning Reconstruction to examine the multiple impacts of chronic illness and the resulting grief, as well as an intervention technique, called My LOG Book in the Illness Journey to engage patients in sense-making, benefit-finding, and goal-setting in the face of their illness and treatment.

This may help us become more effective professional companions in the course of illness, as we become more attuned to the complexities and better able to empathize with our patients’ struggles to navigate living and losing, holding on and letting go, and embracing hope and experiencing grief in the process.

Learning Objectives:
1. Differentiate tangible and intangible loss, ambiguous loss, nonfinite loss, disenfranchised grief, and chronic sorrow;
2. Describe the Tripartite Model of Grief Therapy as Meaning Reconstruction and its relevance to the context of chronic illness; and
3. Apply a meaning-oriented tool, My LOG Book in Illness Journey, in clinical practice with patients suffering from chronic illness.

This program is Approved by the National Association of Social Workers (Approval #886593858-4610) for 2 continuing education contact hours.”
