This live-stream workshop utilises a combination of theoretical input, filmed examples, and interactive exercises in considering the implications of grief in its various forms for family members and for family functioning generally.
The family therapy literature (with very few exceptions) has not attended well to issues of loss and grief, while the grief literature is, by and large, focused on the individual. This workshop seeks to bring together information and understanding from both.
Aside from bereavement grief, this workshop also explores the impact on families the grief associated with experiences such as mental illness, disability such as acquired brain injury, chronic illness, and the many other life events which lead to non-finite (disenfranchised) grief.
