Event description

Description

15% of mental health issues are caused or exacerbated by unresolved issues of grief and loss (Julia Samuel, CBUK).

This figure means that, on average, 3 out of every 20 clients that you see will fall into this category.

The day will give you an informed understanding of how to work with issues of grief and bereavement, either expressed or denied; this will be done through offering information, practical strategies and ideas that will support your work with bereaved people.

The day will include:
Talking about death and dying – with your own families and your clients.

An understanding of natural responses to grieving and what complicates or prolongs grief, and how this can be informed by attachment styles.

Practical application of grief theory to inform your future work with clients.

An introduction to the Range of Response to Loss Model and the Adult Attitude to Grief Scale.

Group work/discussion using either provided case studies or your own experiences.

Death, dying and loss affect us all, so understanding your own feelings better is essential in finding the resilience to offer support to others.

Taboo and Tears – what to say? What not to say? Why is death a taboo subject and why do most people find it hard to talk about it?

How can you work with a person in bereavement who cannot achieve “change” or be “fixed”?
