There is transformative potential inherent in grieving. We will explore myths and models of grief, obstacles to it, and how personal strengths can support it. Cultivate skills to support others who are grieving by increasing your self-awareness and self-care. (Note: This class is not grief therapy and is not recommended for those who have suffered a recent loss. Contact the instructors if you’re unsure about participating.)
