Making Sense of Grief
Dates, Times & Venues:
- Tuesday 2 December 2014, 14:00-16:00, Boardroom (3rd floor), Students Union
- Book a place
This workshop has been written to help you understand and cope with the feelings of grief we all experience after the death of someone close to us. This may have happened recently, or many years ago. There is no right or wrong way to express grief. Every bereavement we experience affects us in different ways; with some continuing to have an impact years later.
This workshop will help you:
- Develop awareness of the variety of reactions grief can evoke.
- Place these reactions into some context (Models of Grief).
- Consider what complicates Grief.
By understanding, and find ways to express your grief so that the impact is more manageable, you will feel more emotionally robust to cope with the day to day stresses of life.
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
