Grief and Loss

Grief is a natural and normal response to loss. Loss in a person’s life can be the loss of a loved one, a job, a relationship or a lifestyle. Everyone experiences loss and grieves in their own way. This workshop will not only be about bereavement, students will also learn about theories of grief, different types of loss, coping strategies and what life can look like beyond bereavement.
