2022Workshops on Loss and Bereavement


This is a series of introductory workshops on a range of topics covering loss and bereavement.

Target Audience

The workshops are targeted at professionals and volunteers who may wish to learn more about loss and bereavement and for those working with people who have experienced a major loss.

These workshops are framed relative to the HSE palliative care competence framework at level two – for people whose work increasingly sees them engaging with people facing loss, bereavement and death. Specifically, the competence dimension for grief and loss; and the competence dimension for communication are of relevance to workshop content and learning outcomes.
