Online Workshop: Grief Literacy 101

Rachelle Bensoussan
presented by OAMHP

We're Back and Together Again!
This introductory workshop is designed to provide a deeper understanding of grief and loss.

Participants will acquire practical skills for supporting individuals, broaden their vocabulary on grief and become empowered to navigate the complexities of this emotional journey with newfound confidence and compassion.

This workshop is inclusive of both death-related and non-death-related losses.

Learning Objectives:

1. A comprehensive understanding of grief and loss from a non-pathology-based orientation.
2. Unpacking common myths and misconceptions about grief and loss.
3. An exploration of the ways grief and loss can impact our whole being.
4. The metabolization of grief and what hinders/supports its metabolization.
5. A social/historical context for our current relationship with grief and loss.
