Bereavement, Loss & Change: Lecture Five - Helping Bereaved People
This programme is part of a series of lectures presented by Dr. Colin Murray Parkes, an expert in the field of bereavement. In this part of the series, he explores methods of preventing health problems after bereavement and their effectiveness, support for people at special risk and the role of health care teams.
This lecture is divided into three parts, each ending with main teaching points highlighted.
Here is a subject of great interest to many professional disciplines within health, social services and beyond. Bereavement affects us all of course, but what is a normal reaction? When does it become pathological and what can be done about it?
Dr. Colin Murray Parkes has spent a professional lifetime working in this area, undertaking research and teaching on the subject to a wide range of audiences. This project is presented as a series of illustrated lectures. They are a pleasure to watch and easy to follow, even for the newcomer.
