Many community support and health care professionals may only have brief contact, or sometimes just a single session, with individuals experiencing grief or bereavement. Effective bereavement support can be offered or initiated via brief contact or a single session, without compromising the quality of the support given.

• Explore the grief experience for individuals using contemporary grief and bereavement theories/models

• Understand and deliver the basics of grief education by identifying common grief reactions, what to do and when to be concerned

• Identify strategies and resources that assist people who are grieving and can be addressed briefly

• Understand when to refer to specialist grief and bereavement services for ongoing support
