Managing change, grief and loss:

This is a workshop designed for use in a wide variety of contexts where groups and individuals are seeking to deepen their general understanding of the nature and impact of change, grief and loss on their lives or in their workplace. In this workshop you will examine the meaning of grief, review the range of changes and losses in life and identify different styles of grieving and grief reactions.

The course is held on both the Callaghan and Ourimbah Campuses. Employees can register for the workshop via the Hronline training calendar.
