Grief is a normal, natural and necessary aspect of life. Despite this, there are many uncertainties on how best to approach this. While there are similarities in how individuals work through loss, grief is a complicated and unique experience that requires helpers to be sensitive to the needs and experiences of these that are supporting. This webinar gives an overview of what grief is and the multileveled issues that may influence this experience. The impacts of grief in terms of children, adults, family and the community are also explored.
