This two day course will run over two Saturdays in January 2017 and is suitable for anyone wishing to draw alongside the bereaved, but, in particular, those working within a pastoral care setting. The aim is to equip those willing to invest their time and compassion in the lives of others with the necessary understanding, awareness, attitudes and skills.
The course will involve presentations, group work, discussions, demonstrations and exercises that will give students ample opportunity to practice the skills and apply the principles introduced on the course. Models and theories relating to the grieving journey, practice of active listening skills and examples of how best to facilitate the grieving process will be included.
