BeWell@StepOne course spotlight:
We understand that people can be nervous about joining online groups and discussing mental health issues. So, we’ve put together this course spotlight to make things a little easier when you’re deciding which of our courses will be best for you.
Bereavement and grief are natural processes which most people will experience at some time in their life when they lose something or someone important to them. It includes the entire process of coping with a loss and it can last a very long time. Grief and bereavement encompasses a wide range of feelings, behaviours, and expressions, all of which can help a person in coming to terms with the loss.
Experiencing bereavement after the loss of a loved one is painful so it’s important that those who have suffered a loss are allowed the time they need to express their grief.
About BeWell@StepOne’s Braving Bereavement course
Braving Bereavement is a 4-week online course providing a better understanding of the grief process and the uniqueness of everyone’s experience of bereavement. Over the course of the four weeks we explore what grief is, different models of grief, the stages of grief and myths about grief. We also look at ideas for self-care, and how others can help us when we’re experiencing bereavement. Finally, we turn our view to see what we can learn from the way other cultures handle grief, and learn tips and techniques for moving forward with the grief process.
