Dealing with Disenfranchised Grief
This module will explore the nature of disenfranchised grief by understanding the language of grief and those situations where grief is difficult to express because of the nature of the loss. Disenfranchised grief can include suicide, traumatic death, and other losses that are challenging to process because they are unacknowledged, avoided, or not legitimized. The second part of this module will provide training in setting up a support recovery group. This will include guidelines for groups, intake forms, the content of a good group, and learning to be a facilitator.
- You will understand the various types of disenfranchised losses in their contextual setting.
- You will learn various interventions and techniques to use in addressing disenfranchised loss
