Grief Theory Refresher


Courses Included

This mini e-course is an introduction to many of the prominent and popular grief theories. For those who may have learned about grief theory in the past, this is a simple a refresher.  We know grief theory can seem abstract and overly prescriptive to some. However, for those who are interested, grief theory does offer many interesting insights into the experience of life after loss. Also, understanding the history and evolution of grief theory provides context for understanding why society makes certain assumptions about grief.
