EWP@UP Workshop: Dealing with loss

Posted on April 24, 2017


The experience of loss and sadness is part of life and it impacts on all aspects of being human – on our physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual selves. Any loss and the impact thereof is a very individual experience. There are often losses linked to the experience of trauma, death of a loved one or friend, health problems, divorce, the ending of a relationship or relationship problems to name a few.  The ways in which people manage loss often differs and the same loss can have different meanings to different people. 

If you recently experienced a loss, or would like to know how to support someone, join us for a four-hour morning workshop at EWP@UP. This workshop is intended for employees working at the Hatfield Campus and their registration will have preference.
