Program Overview

This program aims to promote awareness and understanding of death and how it affects individuals. Courses in the program focus on grief and bereavement issues, communication strategies and religious philosophies of dying and death from the perspective of both the dying and the bereaved. Graduates of this unique program will have the skills and experience to better understand, support and care for those facing or coping with death. The program is ideal for individuals who work with the terminally ill or their families and for those who provide support or assistance to those affected by death including police officers, teachers, paramedics, social workers and employees in hospitals, hospices, and long term care facilities.
