“Our Experience of Grief is unique as a Fingerprint”, David Kessler – Grief Expert
Rail workers may be exposed to trauma on the job which over time can transition into grief. Add to this the losses we may all experience in our everyday lives – losing loved ones, pets, jobs, relationships, homes, good health… it’s no surprise that many of us are struggling with grief.
With thanks to national not-for-profit, Griefline, this short introductory webinar aims to help normalise the grief experience in all its different forms, explore how it can impact various parts of your life, and understand the ebbs and flows of the grief journey.
