Sep 2021 Workshop – Nurturing the Tree – Strengthening Families After Loss

Michael Ellwood

Following a loss, why do some family relationships strengthen while others are challenged? The experience of loss is unique to all of us, as are the coping strategies we use. In this workshop, Michael will explore the ways in which the loss of a child may impact upon families, including using examples from his clinical practice.

Participants are encouraged to share what they have found helpful in strengthening their family relationships. We will then explore ideas to support the strengthening of families after loss, including practical strategies and tools.

Michael Ellwood is a private practitioner with 17 years’ experience working in the area of couple and family relationships. His background has included couple and family therapy, work with separated couples and children, grief and loss and crisis support. He has a background in social work and holds a Masters of Counselling, and has been teaching and supervising within the University of Queensland’s Masters of Counselling program for the past 14 years.  For more information on Michael’s counselling services see
