Loss and Change

Module code: AE2111

Module co-ordinator: Mary Graham

In this module you will consider and reflect on your own experience of loss and your own personal ways of managing change. We will identify and analyse the connections between life events and developmental issues. You will examine the issues of bereavement and loss and critique stages of grieving in theoretical models. You will also learn how to assess risk of suicide, working with suicidal clients, within the issues of legality and confidentiality.
