Counselling Workshop on loss and grief

Chennai's Center for Counselling is conducting a counselling workshop on Living through loss and grief   from 28th to 30th November 2008 (Friday to Sunday) at our office: 18 Radhakrishnan Salai 9th St.,3rd Floor, Mylapore, Chennai 600 004.

The objective of the workshop is to help counsellors in turn help their clients cope with loss and grief.  When someone experiences loss; 

loss of health (terminal illness), 

loss of limb (accident), 

loss of a loved one, etc 

they go through grief. Grieving is a natural and expected process, which involves feeling many different emotions over a period of time, all of which eventually help the person to come to terms with the loss.

This workshop will help one to understand the expression of emotion and thought about the loss, including sadness, anxiety, anger, loneliness, guilt, relief, isolation, confusion, or numbness. This workshop will also help one to think creatively about the challenges that follow loss, and to cope with concurrent changes in one’s life.

We use participatory learning techniques. Group discussion, sharing of testimonials, games and exercises, consideration of case studies, role plays are some of the methodologies used.

We charge Rs.2, 500/- , this includes material, lunch and tea. Accommodation maybe arranged for participants on request. Registrations are open.
