Grief Basics Workshop Series

Join our Grief Aunties, Eno Akan-Essien and Aara Amey-Ayer for this 5 part facilitated workshop series to dive deeper into Grief Basics. This will be a space for discussing how grief is showing up in your personal and work life, thinking critically about grief theory, processing loss through sharing, witnessing, and expressive arts, and always coming back to how we’re taking care of ourselves and each other.

Each week we’ll be focusing on a module from the online course. You’ll get the most out of the discussions if you’re able to go through the module before ease session (the modules take about 20 minutes to complete), but it’s not mandatory for attendance. The facilitators will briefly recap each module then open for discussion, feedback, and activities. Participants who attend 3 out of 5 sessions will get a certificate of completion at the end of the series.

Week 1: Types of Grief

Week 2: Responses to Grief

Week 3: Expressive Arts & Crafts
