Workshop / Student Affairs

In order to help students who have lost a relationship (parent, spouse or friend) due to death, divorce or separation, this workshop is designed to facilitate the process of rebuilding. Stages of grief will be reviewed, as well as the core tasks of dealing with denial, fear, loneliness and guilt. Students will address anger, worth and transition so they are more open to letting go, trusting and finding purpose in their present situation. Remembering the important lessons learned from the relationship and celebrating the positive memories will be balanced with the opportunity to manage the frustration and disappointment associated with loss, especially premature or unexpected loss.
