‘Loss and Grief in Later Life’
Bereavement and loss are common experiences for older adults and can have a pervasive impact on health and well-being. Therefore, supporting older adults to grieve, to reflect and adapt to challenges facing them in later life is important. This workshop will consider losses across both the lifespan and accumulative losses specific to later life. The workshop will be experiential in nature using multi-media, group work techniques and mindfulness. It will draw on the current literature and theory in loss and grief in later life. How grief is experienced across various cultures will be also explored.
On completion of the workshop participants will be able to:
feel more comfortable and confident in engaging in conversations about grief and loss with older adults
understand the variety of issues relating to loss and grief that are specifically of concern to older adults – such as role, cognition, spousal and close family loss and anticipatory grief
understand the factors that promote resilience in later life
have an expanded toolkit for engaging with participants in this age group
be aware of appropriate supports and resources
