Working with Complicated Grief

Speaker: Beverly Mustaine, Ed. D., LMHC, NCC, CCMHC, ACS

Associate program chair for the College of Counseling, Psychology and Social Sciences at Argosy University, Sarasota and Argosy University, Tampa  Complicated grief occurs when people become so debilitated by grief that they are unable to return to their daily activities, even after an extended period of time. The symptoms are similar to those of “uncomplicated” grief, but more intense and debilitating, and longer lasting.  


All mental health counselors will work with clients who have unresolved losses that may take the form of complicated grief reactions. This presentation will focus on complicated grief, the types of complicated grief and strategies to facilitate grief therapy.

Participants will  learn to :

  • Understand the difference between uncomplicated and complicated grief
  • Identify the difference between grief counseling and grief therapy
  • Identify four types of complicated grief
  • Identify the goals of grief therapy
  • Identify grief therapy strategies
