Grief Transforms Everything

The Transformative Nature of Grief

Please consider taking The Transformative Nature of Grief online class at the Figley Institute if you need CEU’s, support or a little inspiration.

The Transformative Nature of Grief provides participants with knowledge and skills that help identify, understand and use characteristics, attributes, concepts and support systems, which the bereaved can implement and utilize in their lives for them selves and others.

The Transformative Nature of Grief investigates factors that make it more likely for someone to constructively respond to adversity and use their experience as a catalyst for positive growth, change and altruistic actions.

The Transformative Nature of Grief explains areas found most beneficial in the experience of altruistic mourners, including meaning and control; purpose, appreciation of human life and new priorities; personal responsibility; and the experience of something beyond our selves.

The Transformative Nature of Grief increases the likelihood that mourners and those who support them will use the experience of death, grief and loss in a constructive manner to create positive change.
