Living into Loss: Anticipatory Grief

Presented by  Greg Roberts

A workshop for professionals and volunteers working in specialist palliative care services in acute and community settings and acute care staff working with people facing death

While we are aware that ‘death and loss come to all of us’, humans spend most of their time focused on living life. When confronted with the certainty of an impending death or the news of an illness that is certain to bring death, life takes on a very different focus.

This workshop pays attention to supporting those living with death or loss on their immediate horizon and introduces the concept of ‘living into loss’, which involves giving acknowledgement to both the grief or losses as they occur and finding ways to embrace the parts of life that still exist. Consideration will be given to the impact of working with the dying on support professionals themselves. Ways to assist people to prepare for the death or loss when it occurs will also be covered in this workshop.

Greg Roberts is a social worker with 18 years’ experience working in the health and community services sector, previously working in aged care, disability, rehabilitation and family relationship fields. In 2001 Greg began to specialise in the field of grief, loss and trauma. He worked as a Counsellor/Educator with HOPE Bereavement Care from 2003 to 2009 and then as a Regional Specialist Bereavement Counsellor for Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement from 2009 to 2011. Greg now works in private practice as a counsellor, educator and consultant, specialising in his key interest areas of grief, loss, trauma, stress management and men’s health.
