Bereavement and Loss Counselling Video

This video represents a research-informed video case study of a client, Kate, who is trying to cope with four major experiences of bereavement and loss. It contains an emotionally powerful counselling session in which the counselling psychologist Anthony Crouch helps Kate to begin to tolerate her pain, develop a spark of hope for the future and identify key therapeutic goals.

In the video Anthony also provides four commentaries that are informed by the very latest research: commentaries on both the session and the subsequent review together with an introduction to both loss and bereavement and the factors that contribute to therapeutic change. In this latter commentary Anthony examines how the latest research on therapeutic factors challenges the traditional medical model of treatment-focused change.

This video goes to the very heart of the counselling experience and demonstrates how research-informed counselling can support a client to bear the pain of loss and achieve profound therapeutic change. It will, therefore, engage a wide range of practitioners and students, not only in the field of counselling and psychotherapy, but also in the broader health and social care sector.

The video consists of the following segments:

  • Introduction to loss and bereavement
  • Counselling session
  • Commentary on the counselling session by Anthony Crouch
  • Review session with Anthony Crouch and Kate two years after the original counselling session

Running time: 2 hours and 31 minutes
