There are plenty of myths about grief such as “You’ll get over it” or “When you’re not crying, you’re not grieving”. In this session we will unearth many myths, why some (or many) of those myths can trouble us, and consider what we’d prefer people to know and believe about grief and bereavement.
It is commonly believed that men and women grieve differently…and there is much we see to confirm this. What are some of these differences? Equally, though, what are some of the similarities? In this discussion workshop, we will consider these and other related questions.
Everyone has different needs in terms of support through their grief, and this session will discuss how counselling might assist some individuals on their grief journey. He will examine counselling expectations, define “effective” counselling, discuss how bereaved individuals can identify the right type of counselling for themselves, and how they might get the best benefit from a counselling experience.
