What will I learn on this course?

    Grief and loss are eternal truths with which we all must face but when it happens we can feel like “Beginners” in a strange and frightening new world. Not only do we often find our own feelings hard to deal with at a time of loss but we find it difficult to know how to deal with others who are bereaved. These sessions will be built around the 2011 film “Beginners” in which John Cusack plays a son who is finding it difficult to deal with the loss of his father. We will use his story to introduce some of the theories which can help us to understand the nature of grieving and some of the possible strategies which we can use to support those who are walking “the long valley” of bereavement.
