The Austin Center for Grief & Loss | 2021 Virtual Professional Conference

Making Meaning in the Era of Loss
Grieving Death and Our Way of Life During the Pandemic
Dr. Evgenia (Jane) Milman

Friday, February 19th & Saturday, February 20th
10:00 am – 1:00 pm
6 hours CEUs for LCSW, LMFT, LPC
$100 Professional Registration

People try to live lives that make sense and matter to them. The death of a loved one or dramatic life changes during the pandemic can make clients question who they are, their world, their future, and their life-stories. Clients are then left struggling to find ways of living meaningfully. With a particular focus on the pandemic, this workshop will describe the meaning making model of therapy, identifying challenges faced by clients as they attempt to make meaning, providing examples of what it sounds like when clients make meaning, and offering techniques to facilitate making meaning. Attendees will have the opportunity to practice therapy techniques and address a panel discussion with clinical experts.

Learning Objectives:
Describe how grief of death and non-death loss during the pandemic can become a struggle to find ways of living meaningfully.
Discuss challenges faced by clients as they attempt to make meaning.
Provide examples of what it can sound like when clients make meaning.
Identify exercises mental health professionals can use to support meaning making with their clients.
Explain how the expressive arts and motivational interviewing can be integrated into the meaning making model of therapy.
