Understanding Ambiguous Loss - Self Study

Dr. Pauline Boss, who coined the term ambiguous loss, will discuss its two types, research updates, and whether there is some ambiguity even in the finality of death. She explains why traditional grief therapy does not work with ambiguous losses and offers ways of thinking both/and, which helps people manage the stress of “not knowing.” Instead of closure and acceptance, the therapeutic goal with ambiguous loss is to build enough resilience to live with the stress of this unique and ubiquitous kind of loss. Six guidelines are offered to assist therapists and counselors in this work.
