Responding to Loss
Responding to loss can often present major difficulties, not only for the people directly affected, but also for care professionals across wide spectrum of settings. Despite the significance of these issues, the subject matter is often neglected. This manual helps to put that right by offering trainers and tutors a basis of understanding loss and grief and how best to respond. Topics include the dual process model, the idea of stages, tasks of grief, the role of culture, ritual, religion and spirituality, loss and the workplace, difficult and complicated grieving and finding new meanings.
This exciting new series of learning and development manuals brings together a team of highly experienced writers, practitioners and learning facilitators with series editor Neil Thompson, a well-respected author and educator. Together, they ensure that these manuals offer an effective way of bridging academic content with the challenging world of practice. As such, they will be invaluable for training presenters and tutors wanting to host events addressing the important range of issues covered by each manual.
Each one provides all the resources you need to provide a high quality learning experience, including helpful background material to set the scene, a range of exercises and worksheets to encourage participant involvement and associated PowerPoint slides to aid the clear and effective presentation of key elements of knowledge and practice. These expertly written resources will provide a foundation of understanding and confidence that will enable even the most inexperienced of trainers to provide high-quality training.
