Bereavement webinar: Session summary

‘loss is an integral part of an individual’s life, which will remain a part of their life until death’. (Bower 1980)

We typically think about loss in relation to loss by death, however, we will experience many types of loss in one way or another in many ways through our lives, and grief is our individual reaction to those losses.

For many people, those responses will be familiar, but for some, they will be hidden as not everyone will able to share or show their grief. As part of this webinar I intend to share some of the recognised grief models which can help us to make sense of those experiences and explore:

·         Different dimensions of loss and grief

·         Awareness of ways people may deal with loss and grief

·         Grief models and responses, complicated grief

·         Reflective practice related to working with loss and grief
