Masterclass: Loss and Grief – 15 October 2020

$190.00 (GST incl.)



This intensive one day workshop gives an overview of grief theory and the practices around working with people facing end of life. It draws on international research and explores the challenges of working with people and their extended family/whānau.

Mary Potter Hospice does not exist on its own however when it considers Loss and Grief, so in 2020 the study days will also include exploration of the impact of community loss and grief  and disenfranchised groups whose loss, grief and bereavement may get “lost”.

It is enriched through personal stories of grief from individual community members and through small group discussion and interaction.

We also invite partners in the community to bring further expertise to the table;
