Working with Grief – Theoretical Models and Clinical Practice
Dr Chien Hoong Gooi, Clinical Psychologist, Indepth Psychology, Sydney, Australia
Grief is the experience of an individual responding to the death of another person. It is a process of adjusting to loss, which can cause severe psychological distress. Many theoretical models have been proposed to describe, explain and provide guidance in working with grief. In recent decades, more contemporary models and formulation of grief have provided better guidelines for clinical work in the area. This seminar explores the various traditional and contemporary models of grief and also their applications in clinical work. It will discuss the important issues relating to the assessment and treatment of grief, and will include the presentation of a case study. The seminar is particularly suited for professionals working with individuals experiencing grief, including psychologists, counsellors, social workers and educators.

Patients experience suffering, shame and despair, yet often remain trapped in the eating disorder, requiring significant support to defeat it. This seminar introduces the main presentations of eating disorders and outlines the current best treatment options, with consideration of how to implement these within the limitations of different treatment settings. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Enhanced (CBT-E), a promising new outpatient treatment, will be described, and suggestions for further training and resources will be provided. The seminar is particularly suited for professionals working with patients with eating issues, including psychologists, counsellors, social workers and educators.
