Exploring the Grieving Process for Hospice and Palliative Care Providers
GRIEF DVD FOR END OF LIFE TRAINING AND IN-SERVICES
Grief: Exploring the Process shows that grief has stages, patterns and normal behaviors in the emotional reactions to loss. This 58 minute DVD, edited from a 90 minute presentation given to health care professionals and Hospice volunteers, gives guidance to the normality of grief.
Grief: Exploring the Process first defines the grieving process, the feelings that unravel as we deal with the loss of someone we know. It offers ideas for visitations and funerals, addresses some of the differences between men and women in their grieving patterns and suggests exercises for resolving unfinished issues often left by death through illness or accident.
Intended audience: Hospice and Palliative Care employees; hospice volunteers; church groups; parish nurses; clergy.
Intended use: Employee orientation or in-services for hospice and palliative care; community education; grief training; bereavement groups.
This DVD, Grief: Exploring The Process is a teaching tool for professionals and lay people alike, with no medical terminology, just simple, direct ideas for understanding the grieving process.
