Loss and Grief
We will focus on: the definition, kinds and various effects of loss; the definition of grief; the 5 myths about grief (Alan Wolfelt); the factors that impact the expression of grief; the personal experience with grief and loss; and misinformation about grief and the grieving process.
This course is one of the modules which comprise our “Basic Arts of Pastoral Care” program. This course will explore the topic in greater depth, and give participants more time for practical exercises.
