GEN PRAC 7102HO - Loss and Grief

Teaching Hospitals - Semester 2 - 2014

This course presents an overview of the paradigm of loss and explores the benefits of expressing loss as narrative. A range of diverse circumstances in which loss and grief may be experienced, such as the breakdown of relationship, illness and disability, adoption, trauma and migration, will be presented, and students will examine relevant issues, supportive intervention and appropriate referral. Students will be encouraged to reflect on their own work experience and practice and will have the opportunity to explore a specific loss of their own choice.
