Description: For us as clinicians, and as human beings, grief work can be powerful. This workshop focuses on ways to prepare ourselves to work effectively with clients who have experienced significant loss by exploring and integrating our own losses and perspectives on life, death, and grief. Steve Bradley-Bull will engage participants with a variety of experiential exercises to aid in their own journeys, with the goal of increasing their ability to be present with clients through their grief. The workshop also features resources for grief work, such as a Grief Wheel, which can provide a roadmap for clients and clinicians, and how to recognize and heed “yield signs” in the grieving process that are fundamental to healing.
Trainer: Steve Bradley-Bull, MA, MEd, LPC is the founder of the Center for All Seasons, a counseling practice in Durham and Chapel Hill. Steve’s practice focuses on living, dying, grief, and life transition experiences and often incorporates mindfulness practices and acceptance work into his counseling. Steve has facilitated workshops and support groups and counseled individual clients for UNC Hospice, Duke HomeCare and Hospice, Hospice of Wake County, Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill, and Caring House of Durham, among others.
