Loss and Resilience: Meaning Making through Illness or Bereavement

Delivered by Counselling Courses at the University of Suffolk with St Elizabeth Hospice.

Loss, change and transition challenge us throughout our lives. As practitioner’s we support people through many kinds of loss and transition including aging, life limiting illness, bereavement, chronic illness and disability, divorce and relationship ending and unemployment.

We will be asking our speakers:

What risks and challenges are there at a time of loss?

What can we do to support their resilience in the face of these challenges?

How do we care for ourselves when we are working with those who are in great distress, bereaved or dying?

Who would benefit from attending?

Professionals working with people who are coping with ageing, loss and bereavement. This includes counsellors and psychotherapists, psychiatrists, mental health nurses, healthcare workers, drug and alcohol support workers, faith and interfaith colleagues.

The day will have three key speakers, followed by practical afternoon workshops where colleagues can learn skills, with a final plenary to pull together the learning from the day.
