Supporting Adults in the Grieving Process

Green Clock Hours: 1.25

As a healthcare provider, you are bound to encounter grief and grieving individuals on a fairly regular basis. Grieving the loss of a loved one is always unique to the individual who is experiencing the loss. Hence, there is no “correct” way to deal with loss, and no set amount of time that an individual is expected to grieve. How a person grieves is dependent upon many factors, including how the person dies. Loss of a loved one through a sudden, unexpected death is often dealt with very differently than a long, drawn out dying process through chronic illness. Other factors that can affect the grieving process include coping skills, the nature of the relationship to the person who died, spiritual or religious beliefs, a personal support system, psychological and physical health, culture, and financial resources. Depending upon the situation, the grieving process for some, although intensely difficult, can provide a sense of personal growth. Others may experience a significantly extended grieving period. This course will help you to increase your understanding of the grieving process so that you can best support adult clients who are grieving, and recognize when individuals may benefit from targeted interventions for complicated bereavement.
