Bereavement Journey

By means of a series of films and discussion groups over 6 weeks The Bereavement Journey gently guides participants through the most common aspects of grief, enabling them to process things for themselves and find ways forward. There is an optional final session (Week 6) on faith questions in bereavement making The Bereavement Journey suitable for people of any faith or none. 

  • Each session lasts up to 90 minutes
  • Online course

Topics covered during the course include:

  • Attachment, separation and loss
  • The impact and pain of bereavement
  • Adjusting to change
  • Anger and Guilt
