About the course
Working through grief and the loss of a loved one takes a long time. The Bereavement Journey course is for anyone who is bereaved, whether recently or dating back several years.
Topics covered include:
Attachment, separation and loss
The impact and pain of bereavement
Adjusting to change
Anger and guilt
Coping with others reactions
Moving forward healthily
And an optional 6th session on the faith perspective.
Each evening includes two short talks followed by an opportunity for discussion in small groups of 6-8 people.
To watch a short introduction video about the course please select here.
All sessions are on Thursdays 7.30pm-9.30pm starting on October 29th to December 3rd.
Attendance for all of the 5 main sessions is recommended. If you are unable to manage all of the dates please consider booking on a future course.
Those attending a previous course said it helped by
‘articulating things I’ve felt/thought but not been able to speak of’
‘hearing other peoples’ experiences and realising I’m not alone in how I feel’
‘opportunity to share things in an empathetic, friendly and safe environment’
