The death of a family member, significant other, relative or friend, changes who we are. It provides us with a new “window” to look through which we have never seen before. It reshapes us. Death, and loss of any kind, reminds us that although we want predictability and control over our lives, neither is guaranteed. This program will examine transitions and what brings them about, the wisdom that comes from exploring our “dark emotions,” relearning our world, and will provide strategies to help families and friends who try to cope with the opportunities and struggles in the “journeys of transition.”

1. Describe what is meant by the “Dark Emotions” and the “wisdom” that comes from exploring them.
2. Describe a “family mobile” and how after a death relearning takes place.
3. Describe various factors that affect the outcome of grief, both as a result of expected and unexpected deaths.
