Event description


Grief is the conflicting feeling caused by the end of or change in a familiar pattern of behavior.

Grief and Sadness are normal reactions to loss: death, changes in health, and stressful circumstances. Most people eventually find ways to deal with their losses with the support of their psycho/social/spiritual network and use of adaptive coping strategies. Some people, however, do not recover and are unable to cope with the demands of daily life.

This workshop explores how people cope loss; the role spirituality plays in the grieving process; how to respond to those who are grieving; and interventions to consider when grief turns in to hopeless despair.

Participants participating in this program will be able to:

1) Define ‘Grief reaction’.

2) Recognize the differing theorectical perspectives and stages of grief/bereavement.

3) Identify the four different types of grief

4) Understand varied religious and spiritual rituals related to the mourning/ grieving process

5) Learn how to integrate positive projects and therapeutic tools transform grief in to positive self-healing.
