Grief is a normal and healthy response to loss. The more we can comfortably talk about and explore fears around loss, the less overwhelming grief will be. In addition, talking about loss with patients can enhance and expedite the healing of other symptoms and issues. In order to help the bereaved, it is necessary to have some understanding of grief theory, some useful techniques to work with, and most importantly, the ability to access, process, and integrate one’s own experiences of grief and loss. This course introduces students to working with grief and loss through didactic learning, interpersonal exercises, and personal work.
Applicants must have education, experience, skill and knowledge in the area they will be teaching. Master’s degree required, doctoral degree preferred.
