Partings: The application of grief theory and models of grief in mediation with Thomas Geldmacher-Musiol and Daniela Musiol
6 March 2018
Tuesday, 6 March 2018
Psychological research has mainly concerned itself with grief and loss experiences as a result of death. But there are a great many of biographical events that can lead to loss experiences, can cause grief without being linked to an actual death: the separation from a partner, the end of a marriage, the loss of friends due to a move, children leaving their parental home.
Grief models can help to capture these specific experiences in order to work with them methodically in mediation. Looking at a separation, a job-related conflict or a significant change in professional life from a perspective of mourning opens up completely new angles and allows for new narrative patterns. Taking grief into the equation may even influence mediation methodology itself.
Join your WA chapter for a discussion led by special guests Thomas Geldmacher-Musiol and Daniela Musiol on the application of various grief models in mediation.
