We understand that people can be nervous about joining online groups and discussing mental health issues. So, we've put together a course spotlight to make things a little easier when you're deciding which of our courses will be best for you. Here is a more information about our Braving Bereavement online course, which starts 6th October.
Bereavement and grief are natural processes. Everyone will experience it at some time in their life. People experience grief and bereavement when they lose something or someone important to them. It includes the entire process of coping with a loss and it can last a very long time. Grief and bereavement encompasses a wide range of feelings, behaviours, and expressions, all of which can help a person in coming to terms with the loss of a loved one.
Experiencing bereavement after the loss of a loved one is painful so it’s important that those who have suffered a loss are allowed the time they need to express their grief.
Can you tell us a bit about this course, who it’s aimed at and what it aims to achieve?
Braving Bereavement is a 4-week online course providing a better understanding of the grief process and the uniqueness of everyone’s experience of bereavement. Over the course of the four weeks we explore what grief is, different models of grief, the stages of grief and myths about grief. We also look at ideas for self-care, and how others can help us when we’re experiencing bereavement. Finally, we turn our view to see what we can learn from the way other cultures handle grief, and learn tips and techniques for moving forward with the grief process.
This course is aimed at those who are looking for a safe space to explore their grief and learn how to carry the memory of the person they have lost as they seek to move forward.
Our Braving Bereavement course aims to help you find a level of acceptance in your bereavement process by talking about your loved one and letting go of any anger or pressures and expectations.
Key takeaway from this course: There is no right or wrong way to deal with loss, but there are tools and techniques to make the process easier.
