Event description
This is the second in a series led by Dr Cathy McQuaid who has experienced and researched the impact of the death of a child of any age.

About this event

When your brother or sister died their loss will be felt by you and anyone else who is grieving for the rest of your/their life, you will never ‘get over it’ or ‘move on’. In Cathy's experience this is certainly the case for the bereaved siblings she interviewed. The emptiness or void that you feel may be experienced as completely overwhelming, the future looks bleak, you may even wonder if there is a future for you at all. How you, and those who may be grieving with you, can rebuild your/their life and find ways of living with loss is central to this session.

This workshop will explore some of the basic building blocks necessary for living day to day. How these may need to be rebuilt after such a devastating death to enable you to live with your loss.

During this workshop you will be introduced to Maslow’s 'Hierarchy of Needs,' examples will be shared from Cathy's research, along with ideas regarding what helped and hindered the research participants in their grief. You will be encouraged to explore how this knowledge may influence you and help you to find a way of restoring those building blocks. Throughout the workshop you will be invited to bring your own experiences so you can get the maximum benefit from the session.

The fee for this workshop is £20.
