Level

Level 1/Level 2

This residential course is designed to help people to better understand their own loss and to also recognise how they can help others who may be grieving. 

We will explore the different types of loss and the possible impact on a person and those around them. This may include themes such as sudden and anticipated loss; Loss of identity; Loss of confidence and self-esteem; Loss of role; Loss of health; loss of a pet and many others.

Bereavement and loss can appear to many people as taboo subjects. Yet loss is an inevitable and natural part of human existence. Therefore it is important we can create safe and healthy conversations around this. With the impact of COVID it is even more imperative we are able to share and explore our feelings.

We will explore what can we learn from loss to help us live a rich and fulfilling life.

During this course we will:

  • Explore different cultural attitudes to death and bereavement
  • Explore  how bereavement and loss may affect individuals
  • Identify ways of supporting an individual experiencing unresolved grief
  • Explore resources and agencies providing support
  • Acknowledge when to refer individuals.
