A number of models since the work of Elisabeth Kubler-Ross now dominate our thinking about grief and the reactions to bereavement: Stroebe's Dual Process Model, Neimeyer's Reconstruction Model, Martin and Doka's Adaptive Grieving Styles, Worden's Task Model and Bowlby’s Attachment Theory Model.  In this webinar, each of these models will be briefly described: their basis in research, their particular virtues and their use in clinical practice.

Learning Objectives:

Understand and describe five dominant models of the reaction to bereavement:

  • The Dual Process Model
  • The Reconstruction Model
  • The Adaptive Grieving Styles Model
  • The Task Model
  • The Attachment Theory Model

Discuss the similarities and differences between the four models.  Do they contradict or supplement each other?  What are the special virtues of each one?
