Upcoming Courses

Lunch N' Learn with Tina Gutman and Thrive Counseling (Nov 3 & Dec 8)

Thrive Counseling presents a two-part CEU series with speaker Tina Gutman! 

11/3/2017 from 12 to 1 PM: Death and Dying
12/8/2017 from 12 to 1 PM: Grief and Loss 

StoryPoint Saline, 6230 S State Rd, Saline, MI 48176

Death and Dying
This presentation will explore the 5 stages of grief or adjustment experienced by a terminally ill individual – as introduced by Elizabeth Kubler-Ross in her work with cancer patients at end of life. Participants will discuss various factors that influence a patient’s progression through these stages including the many emotional challenges one may experience. We will review specific tasks that commonly concern individuals at end of life as well as elements that contribute to the concept of “a good death.” This goal of this presentation is not only to offer information, but to serve as a relational framework to those who provide support and services to terminally ill or aging clients.

Grief and Loss
This presentation will introduce the topic of bereavement, and define the terms grief, loss, and mourning. Participants will discuss factors that influence an individual’s grief experience as well as common symptoms of grief. We will explore the 4 Tasks of Grief outlined by JW Worden and address how to identify different types of grief and when interventions are needed. Most importantly, this presentation will conclude with how best to provide support to a grieving client or family member or refer to a professional.

StoryPoint will provide a delicious lunch for both events!

Nurses can earn 1 CE and Social Workers can earn 1 CEU for each course.
