Death impacts on everyone in our family without exception.

About this Event

This module will explore the impact of death and loss upon the family system. You will explore death and the family life cycle, looking at how families react to loss. A special emphasis will focus on how children understand death and express their grief.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the systemic perspective of the family and how the impact of death can affect individuals and the system as a whole
  • Describe the different ways families respond to death and loss
  • Integrate the systemic understanding of death and loss in helping children grieve
  • Apply the knowledge of grief and the family into the context of church ministry and community

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.

Facilitator: Dr. Helen Noh M.Sc., MA., Ph.D.

Helen is Assistant Professor of Psychology at Tyndale University College and Seminary. Her clinical training has been with children, adolescents and their families, through the Glen Roberts Study Institute in California and through private practice in Toronto.
