Case Study: Grief
Untangled Mind is proud to share the story of a client who sought relief from the pain and suffering of complicated grief disorder. The client, who we will refer to as Emily, experienced the loss of her father several years ago. However, she had been struggling to process her grief and move forward with her life.
Emily's grief had become so overwhelming that she was experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, and social isolation. She felt stuck in her grief and unable to find a way out of her pain.
When Emily was struggling with complicated grief disorder, she turned to Untangled Mind for assistance. Piper collaborated closely with Emily to create a customized treatment plan that would target her specific needs. After careful consideration, we suggested cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), a widely recognized and effective form of therapy for treating complicated grief disorder. Specifically, Piper utilized a therapeutic technique developed by The Center for Prolonged Grief.
Although Emily was initially apprehensive about undergoing therapy, she soon discovered that CBT was an invaluable resource for managing her grief and associated symptoms. She learned practical skills for identifying and challenging negative thought patterns, which helped her feel more in control of her emotions. As she continued with therapy, Emily also learned techniques for processing her grief and finding meaning in her loss.
Through her hard work and dedication to therapy, Emily made significant progress in her mental health journey. She reported feeling more at peace with her loss and more able to engage in activities she once enjoyed. She also reported experiencing fewer symptoms of depression, anxiety, and social isolation.
Emily's success story is a testament to the power of cognitive behavioral therapy in addressing complicated grief disorder. At Untangled Mind, we are committed to providing personalized, evidence-based care to help our clients achieve their mental health goals.
