Grief is a universal experience, yet many of us struggle to talk about it, let alone support others who are grieving.
Wendy Liu, Specialist Grief and Trauma Counsellor and Accredited Mental Health Social Worker, joined us for a Staying Well in the Law webcast on Tuesday 13 April, to unpack the impacts of grief and how best to support someone experiencing grief.
Wendy has provided training and consultation to NSW emergency services, the Australian Psychological Society, and is featured in ‘Any Ordinary Day’, an award-winning book about trauma and resilience by Leigh Sales.
In this presentation, Wendy discussed:
- Grief and its impacts
- Types of grief
- Principles and approaches to supporting people who are grieving (including information on what not to say)
- Relevant strategies and resources
