In this workshop we will define secondary losses, as well as the terms disenfranchised loss and ambiguous loss. We’ll also examine some common secondary losses such as friendship, finances, privacy, traditions, and home. Secondary losses are a normal part of grief; our hope is that, by identifying and acknowledging them, we can begin to honor our entire grief process and journey.
This workshop will focus on:
- Addressing and defining terms such as: secondary loss, disenfranchised grief, and ambiguous loss
- Utilizing videos and real life accounts to articulate secondary losses such as friendship, finances, privacy, traditions, and home
- Providing a space to reflect on the topic of secondary loss and begin to identify for oneself the secondary losses incurred in grief
