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 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. The 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.
