CHD 751 Counseling for Grief and Loss 3 sem. hrs.
Grief is an inevitable, normal, and universal experience. It is a process that is unique for each person and his/her specific experience of loss. For some people, loss presents challenges which can be helped with counseling. This course serves as an introduction to the process of grief counseling, based on literature supporting effective theories and interventions. The structure of the course reflects a preparation of counselors that includes three components: development of awareness of personal experience and beliefs on grief, increase of knowledge of grief terminology and theories, and promotion of skills to use when working with clients managing grief and loss. The assignments for this course have been developed to help students as they begin working with clients in practicum, internship, and post-licensure. Next offering TBA.
