Living With Grief

Living with Grief is aimed at assisting people living with loss who want to find a way to navigate life through the process of grief. Learn easy-to-implement practices and evidence-based information to improve your quality of life and restore a sense of meaning and purpose.

About the Course

There is no right or wrong way to live with grief, there is only your way. Until you have experienced grief yourself, you are unlikely to understand its depth and complexities.

Living with Grief is a self-paced online course delivered over four modules aimed at assisting people living with loss who want to find a way to navigate life through the process of grief. There are easy-to-implement practices and evidence-based information that can make a significant difference to improving your quality of life as well as restoring a sense of meaning and purpose.

Each module delivers contemporary and easy-to-understand approaches, plus straightforward models to explain and manage the emotional rollercoaster with understanding and skill. Each module offers four reflective questions to support your learning. There is a Personal Journal and further reading and links at the end of the course workbook.

There are easy practices that can make a profound difference to the experience of grief, plus a Coming to Your Senses mindfulness practice within every module.

Facilitators Petrea King and Margie Braunstein, through their personal and professional experience, engage, educate, encourage and support you to develop a Personal Plan to create a healing pathway for yourself.

Undertake the course in your own time, at your own speed. Each module is between 14-20 minutes long, accompanied by reflective questions.
