Individual context impacts the way we experience losses in life. Losses are disenfranchised when they are unrecognized or not socially sanctioned. LGBTQ people may experience disenfranchised grief through the death of a partner or the coming out process itself. The withdrawal of support from loved ones may represent ambiguous loss. This session aims to help counselors understand the universal aspects of loss while acknowledging the diverse loss experiences of LGBTQ people.
