“Partings. The application of grief theory in mediation”
2. März 2018, 9:30–12:30
Organized by Relationships Australia SA (www.rasa.org.au)
According to an academic definition, grief is the sum of the “psychological reactions that can occur after the loss of a close human being by his or her death.” Therefore, psychological and psychotherapeutic 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.
Participants in this seminar will learn about different grief theories and grief models and will put the application of these models for non-death-related experiences in mediation to the test.
