When Grief Becomes Complicated - An Examination of Uncomplicated and Complicated Grief, with Diagnostic Considerations & Treatment Implications

The experiences of so-called "normal" or uncomplicated grief and Major Depression are a source of continued controversy and confusion among many health professionals.   Although many symptoms of grief are common to a depressive experience, grief and depression are also different in important aspects and sorting out the clinical picture has implications for treatment.  In treatment settings, individuals often present with more complicated or prolonged grief reactions.  The experience of grief can be complicated by a number of factors, leading, for example, to traumatic grief or grief related depression.  This workshop will aim to outline the symptoms of so-called normal grief and how it differs from depression, to dispel some of the common myths about grief, and to address some factors which can complicate or prolong the grief reaction.
