Social work is a profession concerned with providing services for people who need help to make fundamental improvements in their lives. This work is multi-faceted and involves support for every age group and a wide variety of social, physical and mental health issues. One of those aspects is supporting people who are struggling to come to terms with loss.

This taster course is designed to cover two main areas; first, it will introduce participants to the concepts of loss, grief, change and transition. It will provide opportunities to further explore how such concepts apply in real life, and by means of case studies, it will invite participants to expand their understanding through self-reflection exercises. 

Course Audience

This course will be of interest to health and social care professionals as well as to those who are perhaps considering studying an undergraduate or postgraduate degree and would like a taste of some of the topics and methods of study that they will encounter at university.
