"A Step Beyond 'I'm Sorry'"
Grief and loss are firmly embedded in the world of emergency services. Providers see it in their dying patients, the families and friends of those patients, their coworkers, and themselves. This class offers techniques from a variety of perspectives and avenues to help cope with grief and loss in ourselves and help those around us as well.
At the conclusion of this class, each student should be able to meet the following objectives:
- Identify circumstances that can create grief and feelings of loss in responders, patients, families, and friends.
- Explain similarities and differences between tangible and symbolic losses.
- Explain differences throughout the lifespan in how people handle loss and how best to help.
- Compare and contrast normal and complicated grief
- Define anticipated loss and explain how it is handled differently than a sudden loss.
- Identify strategies to help patients, families, and coworkers who have experienced a loss
- Describe techniques for self care in the context of grief and loss
