Short Course Overview: Supporting Those Before and After a Death

While we are aware that ‘death and loss come to all of us’, humans spend most of their time focused on living life. When confronted with the certainty of an impending death or the news of an illness that is certain to bring death, life takes on a very different focus.

This online short course pays attention to supporting those living with death or loss on their immediate horizon and introduces the concept of ‘living into loss’, which involves giving acknowledgement to both the grief or losses as they occur and finding ways to embrace the parts of life that still exist. Consideration will be given to the impact of working with the dying on support professionals themselves. Ways to assist people to prepare for the death or loss when it occurs will also be covered in this short course.

Learning Modules: At the conclusion of this online short course, participants will be able to:

Describe what is meant by anticipatory grief, in light of current theory and practice in the field of grief counselling
Identify a range of strategies that can be used to support people before and after death
Apply the concept of ‘living into loss’ when working with grieving individuals
Be aware of how anticipatory grief can impact on professionals working in the field

Course Structure:

The structure of this course is self-paced learning.

Within the course, you will find four pre-recorded modules that go for roughly an hour each.
These are to be watched in your own time within the four-week period.
 
The only set time which forms part of the course is the one-hour live Zoom Q&A in the last week of the course.
The timing of this will be provided upon course commencement.
 
More information including your login for LearnBook (online course platform) will be sent a few days prior to the course starting.
You will then have access to the platform, so you can make yourself familiar with it, ready for the modules to launch on the course commencement date.

Assessment: 

Students will need to engage with each module and complete the learning opportunities along the way. Whilst no formal assessment is required to complete the course, students will be required to score an average of 80% or above in the multiple-choice quizzes to receive a certificate of completion to claim the 10 OPD points offered by the ACA.
