Workshop Overview: Supporting and Communicating with the Bereaved

Grief is our response to loss. It is the normal, natural and inevitable response to loss, and it can affect every part of our life, including our thoughts, behaviours, beliefs, feelings, physical health and our relationships with others.

This workshop is designed for anyone encountering bereaved people in their professional lives. It is helpful for anyone who wants to understand the issues surrounding bereavement and how to communicate with clients and customers after someone close to them has died.
 
Learning Outcomes: At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

Gain an overview of Grief and Loss theory
Learn how to communicate effectively and compassionately with bereaved people
Develop confidence talking about difficult and sensitive matters
Understand Self-care and its impact
