Understanding Bereavement – September

Our specialist Knowledge Exchange Team delivers high quality education through interactive training sessions. Our study sessions and courses are continually reviewed and updated, with new subjects added regularly to provide the most up-to-date guidance and expert advice, and to facilitate topical and diverse discussions amongst health care professionals and members of the community.

This session is suitable for members of the community as well as health and social care professionals.

Our Understanding Bereavement session is both informative and interactive using video, group discussion and reflection.

You will explore your own feelings about loss and bereavement and learn about the ways in which bereavement affects people.

You will also look at your own coping strategies for supporting people who have been bereaved.

What will I learn?
• What grief is
• The ‘cycle of grief’ (using the Kubler Ross model of grief)
• The difference between ‘normal’ and ‘abnormal’ grief
• What advice and support we can provide to people who are bereaved
