Regardless of whether a death was expected, when it happens there is the shock of finality. In this course we will confront the reality of death, and discuss various aspects of how we cope with it in a wholistic and realistic way to minimize the emotional and psychological damage done by the loss. In addition, we will look at some differing aspects and situations that arise when death occurs. Our purpose is to find ways to help those who are struggling with a death to face it honestly and directly, make the necessary adjustments to come to grips with "the new normal", and go on in life despite the radically changed landscape.
