Loss and Grief

This course is offered as a distance learning course. It prepares the MSW student for social work practice with clients coping with loss and bereavement. The initial focus increases students awareness of, and sensitivity to, issues related to death, dying, disability and bereavement. Theories of attachment and loss are used as a framework for assessing bereavement reactions in clients in different developmental stages and from different cultural backgrounds. Therapeutic interventions are examined and applied through case discussions and experiential exercises
