Memorial Woodlands Seminar and Lecture Series: Understanding Loss, Grief and Bereavement
Thursday 14th May 2020, 10am- 1pm, Memorial Woodlands
Facing the loss of someone we love is a very painful experience. As professionals in End of Life Care, we will be faced with the grief of others as well as our own. Creating more understanding of grief is an important part of helping the healing process.
This half-day workshop on Understanding Loss, Grief and Bereavement will help you understand the impact of grief, the current theoretical approaches to loss and gain insight into the diversity of experiences in relation to bereavement.
Places are free for local professionals working in End of Life Care but limited to 20 for this workshop.
