This course is part of the certificate on aging.

May 4, 2022 - June 1, 2022
Wednesdays, 6:00 - 8:00 PM ET

An inevitable part of our lives, death and dying, is often accompanied by fear, dread, sadness, avoidance, and discomfort. Recognizing people's different comfort levels, this course addresses the many issues surrounding death and dying, and offers practical pathways for coping. Participants examine their own and others' feelings about death, especially as these impact resistance to end-of-life planning and preparation. We also consider different religious and cultural funeral practices; the process of grieving; normal and abnormal grief and mourning; appropriate interventions to help; and the processes of healing and re-entry.
