SWK 435 - Understanding Grief and Loss
Understanding Grief and Loss
Prerequisites: NONE

This course will focus on the experiences of loss, grief and bereavement as it is viewed by individuals, families and loved ones. How we cope with grief shapes our lives, challenges our responses to change and can determine how we form, maintain, and let go of relationships. This course will examine theories on grief and loss across the lifespan. In addition, we will consider how social factors i.e., culture, ethnicity/race, gender, class and sexual orientation may impact the grieving process. Further, the role of spirituality and coping will be explored and discussed to increase the clinician's ability to work with this content in therapy.
