Bereavement and Grief are topics that many people feel unprepared to talk about. It can be very difficult to know what to say to someone who is going through this extremely tough period in their life. Despite our best wishes, we can end up causing more harm than good if we do not know what to say. Sometimes, even the most well-intended comments and conversations won't help the grieving person. This course is important for everyone, as bereavement and grief will always be present, both within and outside of the workplace.
