As part of Palliative Care Week 2022 (11 – 17 September), Liz Gleeson (Psychotherapist, host of Shapes of Grief podcast) and All Ireland Institute of Hospice and Palliative Care are delighted to invite you to a webinar: Shapes of Grief – an exploration of grief before & after death. This webinar is open to the general public across the island of Ireland. It will take place on Tuesday 13 September from 7-9pm.

The webinar will explore:

  • An exploration of Loss and Grief
  • A look at what the research tells us about grief and how to support people in grief
  • Anticipatory Grief – when it occurs and how to support it
  • Ambiguous Loss – when something is lost, but it’s not always obvious
  • How grief can affect our body
  • How to cultivate a compassionate approach when supporting bereaved people

Liz Gleeson (MA Dramatherapy, MSc Bereavement Studies and MA in Counselling Psychotherapy) is an experienced Psychotherapist and Educator in the field of Grief and Loss and is currently a PhD student exploring the role of compassion in grief support. Liz is creator of the podcast Shapes Of Grief and also offers an Award-Winning online Grief Training Programme for Healthcare professionals.

In 2015, Liz qualified as an Open Floor Movement Therapist, an approach that she uses to inform her clinical practice and she has a particular interest in how grief manifests in the body and how to use our bodies to support the grieving process. It will be an interactive webinar that will last for 120-minutes. It will include a presentation from Liz Gleeson as well as time for reflections and questions.
