Has your life changed dramatically lately? Have these changes left you with an overwhelming sense of loss?
Grief is a normal response to major life changes, and you can heal from it. But in order to do so, you must first understand more about it.
In this course, you will learn:
- What loss is and how it differs from grief and mourning
- Why reactions to the same loss can vary
- What can happen when you don’t deal with your grief
- How to know if loss is currently impacting you
- How to support someone who is dealing with loss
- When you need to find a therapist
Learn to Identify Unprocessed Grief and Loss
It can be so painful to face the intense emotions that come with loss. But if we don't deal with them, life can get worse.
Assess Yourself for Cumulative Loss
Most people only think of death when it comes to loss, but loss can include many types of painful experiences.
Learn When to Get Help
Learn how to support others as they work through grief and loss and when to get professional support.

Sarah Engler, LCSW
Hi! I’m Sarah. I have been working in mental health for almost 25 years. Both personally and professionally I’ve seen the impact of loss. Every single one of us deals with loss and yet we kind of stink at supporting ourselves and others in the experience. It is not a fun topic to talk about. We don't want to be a burden or make other people uncomfortable — not to mention that it really shouldn't be that big of a deal (or at least that’s how we feel). But there can be major consequences when we don't deal with loss. So what are we supposed to do? This is a major part of my work — supporting and educating those who are dealing with loss. With that goal in mind I have created two courses. The first course is all about the basics: The definitions of grief, loss, and mourning; different types of loss experiences; what can happen when we don’t deal with our loss experiences; and ways to support others. The second course dives deeper and explores the keys that are necessary for moving through loss in a healthy way, without suffering. These courses will make a difference in your life and in the lives of those you love.
