Supporting People with a Learning Disability through Loss and Bereavement – Exeter, 11 February 2019

LAST FEW PLACES REMAINING!

The concepts of loss and bereavement and how they affect people with learning disabilities can be anxiety-provoking subjects for support staff.  There is good evidence that people with a learning disability are particularly vulnerable to its effects.  We are therefore pleased to be offering a new one-day course to give staff more confidence to identify grief and unresolved loss, and the opportunity to discuss practical solutions to support people who are grieving.

This one-day workshop will cover the following concepts and exercises:

  • Terminology discussion
  • Different losses in the lives of people with Learning Disabilities
  • Learning from personal experiences of loss
  • Models of understanding the process of grief
  • Complicated grief
  • The importance of funerals
  • Specific complications in grieving for people with Learning Disabilities
  • Practical solutions to support people through grief
