Reviewing the Stages of Grief
February 22 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm| Free
There is increasing recognition that our grief often moves in a non-linear fashion, rather than moving through a clear and predictable set of stages. Even so, theories—from the stages theories of Elizabeth Kubler Ross to the task theories of William Worden—can shed light on our experiences of bereavement.
In the first Topics Around Grief discussion workshop for 2020, we investigate these thought-provoking, sometimes contentious, bereavement ideas. The audience will also be encouraged to reflect upon and discuss which theories most reflect their own bereavement experiences.
The Facilitator: ANDREW WEATHERHEAD is the bereaved father of MAX and bereaved brother of CAROLINE. He served as TCFV President from 2015 to 2019, has helped drive the organisation’s community education program, and has facilitated a broad range of information sessions for TCFV.
Feel welcome to arrive any time after 2pm to settle in, have a coffee and chat. We will commence the session at 2:30pm sharp.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Topics Around Grief sessions are different from TCFV support group meetings, focussing on a particular topic, rather than “where we are at in our grief”. If you are new to TCFV and the experience of discussing your grief, we highly recommend you first attend group meetings for a period of time, as Topics Around Grief sessions have a singular focus and cannot meet all needs.
For group meeting details, please feel welcome to call us on 9888 4944 / 1300 064 068
