Overview

Firstly, unresolved grief is a major ‘disturbance of the attachment system’. Therefore, for those of us with unresolved grief, moving through our grief is a necessary part of the path from insecure to earned secure attachment. This is our aim in this course.

This program will mainly use Chairwork adapted to a guided meditation format, which involves talking to our departed loved one (or lost part of self). We will dialogue with them, give voice to what is unresolved, and seek resolution, all in the context of guided meditation.

In addition to chairwork, this course will draw on

  • Gestalt – giving voice to all that is unresolved in the here and now
  • Existential Psychotherapy – concerned with the human condition and the inevitability of death in life
  • Attachment Theory (Bowlby)
  • Metacognitive Therapy – “thinking about thinking”; being able to recognize your thoughts and understand their source
  • Ideal Parent Figure Protocol (Brown & Elliott)
  • Stages of Grief (Kübler-Ross) – denial and isolation, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance and hope.

We will also use the Buddhist compassion meditation of “tong len” to further integrate and metabolize our grief. This helps us see grief as part of our shared humanity

You will be encouraged to listen to the guided meditations with your practice pod, however there will be no further homework in this course outside of class attendance.

So it is with grief where, if all goes well, can come a strengthening of the inner world, of memory and definition. – John Bowlby

Unresolved loss is an important area assessed on the Adult Attachment Interview (AAI).  According to John Bowlby, the creator of Attachment Theory, grief and mourning can disrupt development and even lead to long lasting psychological maladie.

Grief Assessment

As part of this course you will be provided a pre and post assessment to help measure unresolved grief and complex unresolved grief.  This will equip you with a better ability to assess your own grief and have a sense for your progress over the period of the course.  Your anonymized results will help us run a pilot study on this modality, as well.
