This workshop is designed to help both professionals and those touched by grief to understand its complexities and explore links with mental health and personal wellbeing.
Target Audience: This course is suitable for staff who want to work in skilful and sensitive ways with clients experiencing loss as well as individuals who would like to learn how to use the grief and loss model in their own lives.
This course enables participants to respond to grief and loss with greater skill and sensitivity.
Most people will experience loss at some point in their lives. Grief is a reaction to any form of loss and can encompass a range of feelings from deep sadness to anger. The process of adapting to a significant loss can vary dramatically from one person to person. It often depends on a person’s beliefs, culture and relationship to what was lost.
Emotions in relation to loss are often surprising in their strength and unpredictability. They can also be confusing. Increasing our understanding of the human response to loss allows us to be more compassionate with ourselves and others at times of great need.
This course will support participants to:
- Know what to do/not do for a grieving person
- Understand J. William Worden’s Grief and Loss Model (4 Tasks of Mourning)
- Identify normal grief reactions and warning signs of depression
