BE 201 - Psychology of Grief

3 credits This course focuses on the grief process and the way in which the grief experience varies in accordance with psychological, sociological, and developmental factors. Students will examine the causes of grief and responses to loss as understood from a variety of theoretical perspectives, including attachment, psychodynamic and systems theories. Reactions to various loss experiences throughout the life cycle will be examined. Attention will also be given to the effects of grief upon the family unit and the mourning of special and/or stigmatized loss(e.g. AIDS, SIDS, suicide, etc.). Finally the course will explore the role of the funerary ceremony in facilitating the early phase of acute grief. For Funeral Service Education students, a minimum grade of C is required in this course. Prerequisite: PS 101.
