Introduction to Grief and Dying
Grief can take on many faces and individuals adopt different ways of coping with their loss. This module will be an exploration of the various attitudes towards death and an examination of the reactions to loss as expressed through grief. Death and dying can present an opportunity for personal and spiritual growth as we explore our losses and share our grief. In order to do this we need to consider the ten essential factors to help the healing process to occur.
- Understand the different reactions toward death
- Explore different tasks faced by the dying
- Understand the phases of grief
Learn practical steps to work through the stages of grief that will bring healing
