Losing a loved one is usually painful and comes with it feelings of grief and loss. Managing grief can be difficult and varies from person to person. Some people cope well; others do not.
In this course, workers learn about the grieving process. The cycle of grief includes denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. They are taught helpful coping strategies including attending the funeral, speaking about the person who died and getting support from loved ones or professionals. Processing these feelings with others helps to reduce feelings of sadness and loneliness.
It’s normal to feel numb, guilty, angry and sad but if these feelings are strong, preventing people from doing normal activities or continuing for more than a year, then they may need extra help.
At the completion of this course learners will:
- Learn that loss is a part of life.
- Understand the signs and symptoms of grief and the expected duration of each phase.
