Loss & GriefThe theoretical outline for this day aim to highlight the sequential development of object relations theory from Freud to Wright (1996) in relation to loss as it is encountered in the clinical practice of art therapy.

As well as looking at a clinical example of working with a client through bereavement, we widen the viewpoint of loss and the process of grief to the context of the many and varied losses our clients suffer and bring to their therapy.

The experience of death and personal loss is a fundamental human experience, how we face death in our own lives informs our outlook both personally and professionally. This workshop will sensitively examine how theory and personal experience provide a framework for supporting others in our clinical practice.
