Workshop Overview:
 Supporting Those Before and After Experiencing 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 workshop 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 workshop.

Learning Outcomes: At the conclusion of this workshop, 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 concepts of 'living into loss' when working with grieving individuals
  • Be aware of how anticipatory grief can impact on professionals working in the field.
