Dealing With Loss
This programme is aimed at navigating loss and uncertainty as one of the biggest psychological challenges we may be facing as a result of Covid-19. The pain of grief can disrupt your physical health, making it difficult to sleep, eat, or even think straight. These are normal reactions to loss—and the more significant the loss, the more intense your grief will be.
Covid-19 is more than a global challenge. It presents challenges at the individual, family, and social levels. For some of us we may have lost loved ones, we may have lost our jobs and this time is especially difficult. For some of us we may feel a sense of loss of a life we once knew or even uncertainty because there are so many critical unanswered questions about the impact of Covid-19.
The expected outcome is for the participants to assess themselves, and identify areas where they want to focus on to improve their level of self-care, as well as acquire practical skills of how to apply the knowledge they have gained in their own lives. Participants will also learn skills of mindfulness to assist in managing stress in their lives.The expected outcome is to assist participants to learn how to temper their need for mastery, and to provide them with skills to be more open, flexible, and gentle with themselves and others. Participants will gain skills for managing change and transitions. They will also gain knowledge about the 6 seconds EQ Model and navigating loss.
When we have a better understanding of our emotions that go with grief, we can make changes in our lives to take care of what’s most important to us and has meaning.
