This course aims to provide the learner with an opportunity to process their experiences, understand them more fully and develop a range of responses for the future – moving away from purely intuitive emotional responses towards being able to choose how best to respond. Within the course, the learner is provided with opportunity to examine their own feelings about loss and grief so that they may be more open to the grieving of others, as well as reviewing literature relevant to grief and loss. Students will also gain an understanding of healthy and dysfunctional grieving processes and will learn strategies for facilitating the grieving process, dealing with the grieving, preventing abnormal grief reactions and knowing when specialist counselling is needed.
