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 live-stream course seeks to bring together information and understanding from both. 

This is not just about bereavement grief, but the impact on families of 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.

This course 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.

Suitable for

Health and welfare professionals who engage with families and/ or are interested in working relationally with loss and grief.
