Many of our members, particularly in home care, daycare, residential settings and special needs schools, develop a relationship with clients and pupils.  The aim of this half day session is to provide participants with an awareness of grief and its impact on ourselves and others; an understanding of the theories of loss grief and bereavement;  an increased awareness of how they could apply theories of loss grief and bereavement to practice when working with those facing loss, grief and bereavement; an awareness of the range of  human responses to loss grief and bereavement and an overview of strategies they could employ to support those living with loss grief and bereavement.   It is also be useful for managers to support staff returning to work after a bereavement.  It will be delivered by Loretta Gribben, Public Health Agency
