When death takes from families one of its members, the emotional and practical impact on survivors of all ages can be profound, so as the post-loss adjustments required on individual and relational levels.  This training equips you to look at a number of unique losses in family systems through a meaning reconstruction lens, and appreciate the different challenges they imply.  This also enables you to assess and intervene accordingly so as to facilitate adaptive family responses to the resulting crisis in meaning and attachment.


  • Describe the different dynamics and implications resulting from various unique losses in the family

  • Develop necessary skills in supporting bereaved families in the respective aftermaths using meaning-oriented intervention tools


  • Specific types of loss in family

    • Spousal loss

    • Parental / grandparental loss

    • Child loss

    • Sibling loss

  • Application of meaning-oriented interventive tools

    • The RING of Life

    • House the LIGHT

    • The CRADLE for My Little One
