Event Details - Supporting Disenfranchised Grievers

Title: Supporting Disenfranchised Grievers
Type of Activity: Workshops & Seminars
Objective of Course / Workshop:

The word ‘disenfranchised’ means to deprive someone of the right to something. With grief, it means being deprived of the right to grieve. Ultimately, disenfranchised grief occurs when the person who is grieving feels unsupported – by friends, family, community, the workplace, society, etc. or feels that their grief is unacknowledged or unworthy.

This workshop is designed for anyone encountering bereaved people in their professional lives and to understand how to support those experiencing disenfranchised grief.
