(3 credits)
This course is an introduction to the theory and application of grief models as they apply to individuals and families, including techniques and strategies to assist clients and students dealing with issues related to grief and loss in a variety of settings (school, mental health, college/student affairs). The course will stress the importance of the professional counselor’s self-awareness and counselor impact on the therapeutic process, as well as the role of ritual, spirituality and multicultural perspectives on grief. At the core of the course will be a respect for the “client’s” cultural contextual, a recognition of the importance of culture and other critical intervening factors on the counseling and grief process, and the maintenance of high ethical standards.
