Bereavement and Loss Module
The Bereavement and Loss module offers theoretical and experiential learning opportunities to explore the topic in a sensitive and respectful learning environment. Contemporary theories are presented by a range of counselling practitioners with a wealth of experience and specialised knowledge in the field. The module offers an excellent opportunity for participants to enhance their awareness of their own responses to bereavement and loss as well as deepen their understanding of the people they live and work with.
This module is also offered within the BSc Psychology and Counselling undergraduate programme and so participants will study alongside final year undergraduates, as well as with qualified counsellors topping up their qualifications to degree level.
As a delegate undertaking this module as CPD you will not be required to undertake any assessed work as part of the module. You will receive a certificate to enhance your CPD portfolio.
