Contexts of Grief and Bereavement Experiences

Grief and bereavement experiences are shaped by the various contexts in which they occur.

In this course, learners take a more in-depth look at grief and bereavement experiences in the Canadian context, including death systems, care pathways, the funeral industry, bereavement policies, social movements, and resources. Through employing critical perspectives, learners will explore various forces (e.g. social, economic) and power dynamics that influence individual and collective grief experiences. Multiple stakeholder perspectives will be considered in the process of analyzing ethical dilemmas and tensions in the field. This course will also investigate approaches to advocacy, community building, and social justice. The learning approach encourages a culture of knowledge sharing and critical reflection, so learners can enrich the content by contributing knowledge of their unique roles and perspectives.
