Developing your counselling skills with bereavement and loss
Day workshop with Polly Singer.
This one-day interactive workshop is designed to provide a helpful underpinning of skills, awareness, and knowledge for anyone who encounters bereavement and loss within counselling contexts. It considers bereavement and loss as an unavoidable part of the human experience, and as a key reason for clients to seek counselling support within both private practice and an array of agency settings.
- Saturday 1st June 2019
- Time: 10.00am to 4.00pm

The workshop is designed to be partly experiential in nature with plenty of opportunity for discussion, small group work and questions.
The learning aims of the workshop include:
- Awareness of the impact of loss and bereavement on self and others.
- Consideration of impact of bereavement on family dynamics, relationships and broader contexts.
- Exploration of selected key models of grief that can be used to underpin work with clients.
