Working with grief and loss - a practical workshop
We have all covered the theories around loss, and in particularly death, but what about other losses in our lives?
This workshop takes a wider look at losses for example including:
- The loss of childhood as experienced by survivors of abuse
- The loss of our ‘happy ever after’ when we experience a partner’s affair and/or divorce
- The loss of our ‘sense of self’ that comes with redundancy or retirement
- The losses associated with having a chronic or terminal illness.
And whilst we know the theories and that loss tends to have stages that aren’t linear, what ways can we find to work with clients that really help?
In our workshop you will...
- Consider the different types of loss
- Explore the varied losses associated with childhood abuse
- Discover different ways of working with grief & loss
- Grieving rituals
- Writing activities
- Psycho-education tools.
All grief is unique to the individual. We’ll help you to explore the many different losses and provide practical tools and resources for working with clients experiencing grief. We always aim to make our courses practical and engaging as well as informative and inspiring. We use a variety of different approaches and teaching methods to ensure you are engaged throughout. We also send you an information pack filled with resources and tools.
