We already know that grief is a multifaceted process that affects all of us. Certain types of grief and loss can exacerbate these challenges. Through lecture materials, interactive discussion, personal exploration and therapeutic approaches, this class will help you explore the complexities of grief. Our focus will include disenfranchised grief, ambiguous loss, complicated grief, and anticipatory grief, as well as effective strategies to manage them. Additionally, you will identify aspects of post-traumatic growth and how it informs coping with grief. You will leave with new knowledge, ideas and strategies to empower you and to implement in your own grief work and professional life.
Due to COVID-19 and the need for continued physical distancing, we are offering this class as a live, online experience. This class will still meet on March 4 & 5, 2022, from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. CT.
