When individuals experience a loss that is not recognized or validated by others, this experience can create complications in their grieving process. Disenfranchised grief occurs when a loss is not recognized or cannot be openly acknowledged, publicly mourned, or socially supported. This session will address how to (1) recognize disenfranchised grief, (2) identify the negative effects that can complicate grief, and (3) work with clients experiencing disenfranchised grief across settings and populations.
