 Program Description

This session will provide participants with advanced concepts in perinatal bereavement care. Through the lens of a theoretical framework for understanding parents’ perceptions of the loss and for guiding interventions, participants will examine the controversial diagnosis of complicated grief related to perinatal loss, examine compassion-first, evidence-based ways to give bad news to parents regarding their loss, and will go beyond a “cookbook” approach in understanding how to use knowledge about cultural differences to provide compassionate, individualized care to all people after perinatal loss.

 Educational Objectives:

At the conclusion of this activity, the learner will be able to:

  • Describe the unique features of grief after perinatal loss and the controversy that surrounds the diagnosis of complicated grief as it relates to the perinatally bereaved.
  • Examine parent-centered, evidence-based ways to give bad news to parents regarding their loss.
  • Evaluate differences in how parents from different cultures may respond to perinatal loss.
