Dealing with Disenfranchised Grief - Module 2, Online, Friday, 30. October 2020

The nature of a death can make it difficult to express our grief.

About this Event

This module will explore the nature of disenfranchised grief by understanding the language of grief and loss. Disenfranchised grief can include *******, traumatic death, and other losses that are challenging to process because they are unacknowledged avoided, or not legitimized. The second part of this module will provide training in setting up a support recovery group. This will include guidelines for groups, intake forms, the content of a good group, and learning to be a facilitator.

Learning Outcomes:
  • You will understand the various types of disenfranchised losses in their contextual setting
  • You will learn various interventions and techniques to use in addressing disenfranchised loss
  • You will know how to establish grief support groups
  • Guidelines to care for the care giver

Special Note:

As Tyndale Seminary’s programs have had to move online due to the pandemic, the Spiritual Formation Centre Certificate Programs are no exception. Although the in-person classroom is the preferred experience, the online curriculum for this certificate program module promises to be truly immersive. While maintaining important elements of community through live streaming, conversations will be enhanced by independent study in preparation for each session. Online programming will also offer the opportunity for others to participate who would have otherwise not been able to do to distance and time restrictions.

The platform for the live streaming will be Zoom. Once registered and closer to the date, details concerning the format of the module and Zoom link will be sent to you.
