Coping with Loss, Grief and Bereavement
This workshop is a 2 to 3 hour workshop designed for staff who may work closely with someone in a supportive role during their working day within a care facility setting.
This is particularly designed for those working in Aged Care but can be adapted to Youth Services, Community Services, Health Services and Schools.
The course discusses and provides sound strategies in how to deal with the loss of a client and help their family members who have lost a loved one either through natural causes or through loss by suicide within your place of work.
The course also reflects policies and procedures within your organisation in relation to how such an occurrence of a loss is communicated through your organisation to ensure staff are aware of a situation and therefore, can be handled effectively and sensitively.
The course objectives and outcomes are;
- Provide an understanding of grief, loss and bereavement as related to the approach in aged care/community services.
- Identify situations where there is a risk of abnormal grief reaction.
- Identify the volunteer/support role and needs of the aged care/community service team.
- Understand the impact of loss and grief on members of the team as well as the family and other residents.
- Identify support strategies in grief and bereavement situations.
- Identify strategies to implement and apply support strategies for grief and bereavement situations.
- Demonstrate an awareness of the grief reactions of people from different cultures especially indigenous Australians.
