PC625  Loss and Bereavement     (3.00 cr.)

Prerequisite: PC675 or PC679. Combines didactic and experiential activities in a seminar-style class that deals with the human grief reaction to loss and coping with issues of bereavement, illness, and end-of-life concerns. Personal experiences and readings enhance content that includes the psychology of human grief; bereavement rituals and cultural diversity; supporting grieving people, both generally and clinically; and criteria for identifying the presence of complicated grief reactions. Students are encouraged to explore the bereavement process relative to their own lives by sharing in small groups, readings discussions, and personal writings.
