Bereavement Workshop with Irish Hospice Foundation


This workshop explores the journey of grief and loss for individuals who have experienced loss in various ways not just through death. It will illustrate ways that can enhance coping for the bereaved individual and help them process their grief. The workshop will help participants to understand the normal reactions to grief and loss and explore how reactions can be more complex and require greater interventions. Contemporary theories and models of grief and loss will be explored. The workshop will be experiential in nature and suitable for both professionals and those working with people who have experienced loss and bereavement.

Time: 09:15 – 16:15 GMT
