The journey of grief and loss is experienced by individuals in various ways, not just through death. This workshop will illustrate ways that can enhance coping for the bereaved individual and help them process their grief. It will help you to understand the normal reactions to grief and loss, and explore how reactions can be more complex and require greater interventions. Contemporary theories and models of grief and loss will be explored. This workshop will provide techniques and tools for those working with people who have experienced loss and bereavement, and the caregiver’s role in supporting the process.
