Fri, 20 Jan 2017, 9:00 AM – Sat, 21 Jan 2017, 3:00 PM EST
It is not uncommon to wonder how we ourselves can cope with death, but where do we even begin to help others through the process?
This module will cover 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.
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.
