Am I going crazy? When will this pain end? Why did this have to happen? These and many other questions are commonly asked or felt when facing the pain of a death or loss. The grief journey oftentimes carries us through a wilderness we would prefer not to venture into. It places us in a “club” we prefer not to be a member of. Join us as the presenter shares her grief journey of the tragic loss of a sibling and how she learned to find a “new normal”. This presentation will assist attendees in understanding the importance of assisting clients with the value of mourning and provide tools/resources to encourage growth and transformation.
- Define grief and mourning and differentiate the two
- Identify at least 3 factors that may impact a person’s grief
- Identify at least 3 needs of mourning
