Wednesday, September 25, 2019
1:00 - 2:30pm ET / 12:00 - 1:30pm CT
This second webinar in a 2-part series explores in greater depth the personal and collective shadow as conceived through the lens of depth psychology, specifically those aspects of ourselves, those we serve, and our organizations which make us uncomfortable. Part two examines how the shadow appears in bereavement, offering a lens to understand complex grief reactions while concurrently describing psychotherapeutic techniques to promote constructive responses.
- Outline the main tenets of shadow work as articulated in depth psychology
- Describe the modalities in which the shadow manifests in end-of-life care and bereavement
- Learn ways to increase awareness of the personal and collective shadow in assessment, case conceptualization, as well as systematically at the family and organizational level
- Identify approaches to respond productively to manifestations of the shadow as end-of-life clinicians and organizations.
