Good Grief in the Workplace – providing your team with the right support


Elite Centre for Manufacturing Skills

University of Wolverhampton, Springfield Campus Cambridge Street, Wolverhampton, WV10 0JR

A full-day workshop for professionals to improve communications around grief and loss in the workplace.

CEDAR Education has joined with the Elite Centre for Manufacturing Skills at the University of Wolverhampton to deliver an important workshop on communication skills, focussing on grief in the workplace. Speaking and listening to someone in the right way at the right time will make a positive difference in the workplace and help employees to support one another in times of distress and loss. But saying the wrong thing, or nothing at all, can set a course for low productivity, increased absenteeism and loss of engagement across a workplace team and their projects.

This full-day workshop will be run by the founder of CEDAR Education and Death Education expert, Dr Judith Wester. She is an academic who has committed herself to transferring contemporary research on death, dying and bereavement into language everyone can understand. Her vast experience includes working with hospitals and care teams and developing Death Studies programmes for higher education and industry. Connect with her on LinkedIn.

The workshop will include a CPD Certificate and cover the following:

• Understand why talking about death matters

• Think differently about how you respond to death, dying and loss

• Increase confidence in talking about grief and loss with others

• Gain a greater understanding of the social consequences of loss

• Learn to use notions of time to speak with people of all ages

• Explore the importance of language

• Improve responses to those who are grieving

This workshop includes workbook, interactive exercises, CPD Certificate, Good Grief Leaf, lunch and refreshments.

We ask you to wear a mask when checking-in to the workshop and moving around the centre. Masks and hand sanitiser will also be provided prior to check-in.

As a non-profit organisation, fees to this workshop go to support our Life Lessons programme for young people.
