Loss and Social Care
By the end of this course you will be able to demonstrate recognition of loss as a key feature of the experience of service users in a range of social work settings. This course aims to enable you to explore the potential impact of the service users' own experiences of loss on their practice, identifying their own developmental and support needs.
Emphasis is also placed upon your ability to critically evaluate theoretical models of grieving in relation to a variety of loss situations. Finally there is an analysis of the social work role and response to loss in service users in relation to those of other professions and services.
