Working with bereavement, loss and change
“The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living” Cicero
The aim of this event:
This event will use practical exercises and case studies to explore the concepts of death, dying and bereavement.
This training will support participants to:-
- Identify a variety of emotional, psychological and physical responses to bereavement and loss.
- Explore their own experiences of loss and the ways in which we bring those experiences to our client work.
- Understand a variety of models of change and loss to inform and underpin practice with clients.
- Consider factors which might complicate or inhibit grief including anticipatory grief, traumatic loss, disenfranchised grief and estrangement, we will also explore the concept of a “good death”.
- Reflect on the role of the therapist and the value of the therapeutic relationship in supporting those who are grieving.
