The experiences of loss, grief and bereavement are universal
human experiences that occur across the life course. Guided
examination of current theories, research and evidence based
practice(s) in grief counseling will be included. This seminar will
focus on building knowledge about the nature of grief, mourning and
bereavement as they are influenced by current social context.
Familiarity with the various types of losses that occur in all age
groups is germane to effective social work practice in all agency
settings. Consideration of tools for assessment and intervention
for differential types of loss is important for effective
treatment. This seminar will incorporate a trauma-informed and
human rights perspective to social work practice with people who
are adapting to complicated and traumatic loss.
