Product Description & Reviews
Dale Larson works with Pamela in a 2-part counseling session. Pamela's daughter, Gabriela, committed suicide at the age 17 by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge. A year after Gabriela's death, Pamela remains in deep, anguishing pain, blaming herself for not seeing any signs or indicators of a somewhat troubled adolescent. As with many bereaved parents, the second year is sometimes the most difficult, and this is the case with Pamela, who continues to struggle on a day-to-day basis. Dale works from a Person-Centered Approach (PCA), which emphasizes a supportive and empathic relationship with the client. Dale's approach to grief counseling is shaped by his basic understanding of grief as a natural condition the human reaction to loss that can generally be expected to abate over time and, frequently, to lead to psychological growth. Viewers should note that the two counseling sessions conducted by Dr. Larson are not part of an ongoing therapy. This bereaved parent was currently in treatment with a mental health professional in her community. Thus, many of the interventions that might be expected in such an interview, such as more extensive assessment or referrals to other mental health professionals and resources, are not made here. The purpose of this video was to show a person-centered approach to grief counseling and to allow the client to share the story of her grief and the life of her beloved daughter.
