PC 725 - Loss and Bereavement

(3.00 cr.)

Prerequisite: PC 662 . Restricted to M.S. students. 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 challenged to articulate the impact of counselor worldviews and the client's spiritual beliefs on the grieving process, and methods for evaluating counseling effectiveness. Students are also encouraged to explore the bereavement process relative to their own lives by sharing in small groups, readings discussions, and personal writings.
