Prolonged Grief Among Refugees: From Research to Clinical Implications and Treatment

Prolonged Grief Among Refugees: From Research to Clinical Implications and Treatment

Via Zoom

Grief is a multifaceted response to loss. Refugees generally experience multiple losses in their lives, making grief a defining characteristic of clients from refugee backgrounds. Refugee experiences can rupture the bonds of love and connectedness to family, friends, and community, thus breaking the survivors’ sense of trust, security and justice both at individual and collective levels. Those bereaved may be at risk for prolonged grief, their resiliency impeded by the severity of the event and the perceived maltreatment of human beings as well as cultural bereavement and multiplicity of settlement problems. In this Clinical Master Class Professor Richard Bryant will give an overview of recent research on prolonged grief amongst refugees, the clinical implications and treatment.
