“And then what” A Grief & Grieving Workshop with Piers Heaney @ Mornington Presbyterian Community Church
Apr 4 – Apr 5 all-day
"And then what" A Grief & Grieving Workshop with Piers Heaney @ Mornington Presbyterian Community Church | Dunedin | Otago | New Zealand

When someone you know has been grieving, have you ever felt helpless or not known what to say or how to respond to them?

And how do you know whether what you do say, or do, will be helpful or harmful for them?

You are invited to spend two days looking at grief and grieving with Piers Heaney Internationally Accredited Grief Specialist & Death Educator Author of “Coming to Grief & “ Children’s Grief”

Have you ever wondered….

  • Why some people get over their grief relatively quickly while others still need to tell their experience years down the track? or
  • Why people seem to grieve differently, even when they are affected by the same experience? or
  • Why people grieve when there is no obvious crisis in their lives?

The focus of the workshop is twofold:

  • To take an in-depth look at the what, why, when, where and how of grief, and how that can be managed, and
  • To increase awareness, skills and confidence in order to make effective interventions and facilitate the process of grieving.

‘Families, Children and All That Goes With Them’

Sara Crane  Dunedin 7th – 9th  April 2017

In this workshop: We will examine the family/whanau as a system, and look at different kinds of family systems.
The family system is an interactive context in which other systems and sub- systems operate.

Various approaches to family therapy will be addressed.
Participants will be stimulated to use their creativity in designing potent interventions for health.
There will be a focus on the “S-factor” (Spontaneity) in increasing the ability to identify and tune in to the needs of children and their families
