Webinar Series: Managing Grief and Bereavement throughout the Lifespan

This webinar series explores the topic of Managing Grief and Bereavement throughout the Lifespan.

During this webinar series, Amanda Gordon focuses on the universal experience of Grief and bereavement. She will explore the prevalence, risk factors and proposed diagnostic criteria for Persistent Complex Bereavement Disorder through the lens of DSM5.

Several different theoretical models of grief will be explored, with a particular emphasis on Shimshon-Rubin’s Two-Track Model. Clinicians will be taught how to differentiate between normal and abnormal grief reactions, as well as between grief and other disorders, such as Major Depressive Disorder and Separation Anxiety Disorder. 

By the end of the webinar series, clinicians will have detailed knowledge on how grief changes across the lifespan and will be able to effectively manage and care for grieving children, adolescents and adults. Helpful tips for clinician self-care when dealing with grieving clients will be reviewed.

Webinar Series: Beyond diagnosis - what else matters?

The APS Institute and Public Interest teams are collaborating on this new Webinar Series “Beyond diagnosis – what else matters to clients’ health and wellbeing?”

This webinar series will explore the value of utilising a Social Determinants of Health-SDoH (the physical, economic, political, personal and social environment) approach to expand the way we think about mental health. Applications of a resource developed by the APS Public Interest team to assist psychologists to incorporate an SDoH approach into their practice will also be explored.

Eight selected presenters will utilise case studies and practice examples to explore how a SDoH approach can be employed in everyday psychological practice to improve outcomes for the clients and communities we serve. A diverse range of clients and communities including young people, clients experiencing violence and discrimination, and rural, regional, remote and Indigenous communities will be explored.

So join us, and our expert group, as we explore this critical new way to think about what matters most in psychological practice. Click on the webinar title below to register for the single webinar
