Opportunities and Postings

Edu-Therapy

Grief and the conflicting emotions caused by loss are cumulative and most often have a growing negative effect on our ability to participate in life. The primary goal of Edu-Therapy™ is to give participants a stable cognitive process to continue to help themselves and their Community with on-going support for 5 years from Edu-Therapy Support. As Physical Care Costs escalate often, Mental Health needs are neglected. Once Certified as an Edu-Therapy Specialist in as little as 6 hours per week, one specialist can bring Mental Resolution of the pain and sadness caused by loss to over 200 people per year. Trained teams can escalate these numbers adding to the resiliency of the Community as people begin to heal at less than the cost of a trip to the ER where little to no emotional care is given.

What Will I Learn?:

  • Dysfunctional ways people mishandle grief and its intergenerational effect on Communities
  • Emotional damage of rationalization and intellectualization
  • Why Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance Models are the wrong approach for grievers
  • Effective and  proper techniques for identifying and resolving loss and relationship conflicts
  • Edu-Therapy™ Process formats for individual and group work
  • How to expand your caregiving agency using Edu-Therapy™
  • How to resolve cumulative unresolved issues such as PTS and the Residential School Experience, abuse and trauma
  • How to deal with what’s known and what’s not … when someone goes missing (Ambiguous Loss)

  • Grief happens in many forms and has great potential to create emotional energy and negatively effect life:
    Death of a loved one
    • Ending of a relationship
    • Suicide of someone close
    • Adoption or foster care
    • Loss of culture
    • Change in career, finances or social status
